Well, I do seem to be doing okay with the Pole to Pole folks this year having placed two stories with them already, “The Blade of Gudrin” in RE-QUEST and “The Game” in RE-LAUNCH on February 2 and 4 respectively (cf. also June 1, et al.).  These are two in a series of reprint anthologies coming out from Pole to Pole Publishing, and more are planned.  Thus a subsequent call:  Pole to Pole Publishing is seeking short, re-print fiction for the RE-ENCHANT anthology to be published in late 2018.  RE-ENCHANT will join our previous submission calls (now closed) for RE-LAUNCH and RE-QUEST in the Re-Imagined Series of anthologies.  RE-ENCHANT requires dark stories and myths about faeries or faerie-like creatures.  And to which, as it happens, I responded.

Today, Sunday, the email came from Editors Vonnie Winslow Crist and Kelly A. Harmon:  Thank you for sending “Dust” for Pole to Pole Publishing’s RE-ENCHANT anthology.  We appreciate the chance to read it, and have decided to accept “Dust” for inclusion in the anthology.  Your contract and additional information will be sent to you soon. “Dust” is a story originally published in my first collection, STRANGE MISTRESSES: TALES OF WONDER AND ROMANCE, concerning two maidens and a fairyland-like castle in Spain . . . and spiders.

Also for the writers among us (as with the posting two items below) might I note that RE-ENCHANT, along with another new companion volume, is still open for submissions through August?  For more information on both press here.
