Raus! Untoten! – Submissions call!


Fringe Works is always trying to find appealing stories that subvert traditional genres. We are currently seeking submissions for an anthology entitled ‘Raus! Untoten’. The story will be published under our KnightWatch Press imprint.

Submission deadline for this anthology is midnight on Monday, 10th June 2013.

As the title suggests, we are looking for stories which involve some combination of Nazis and the undead. Raus! Untoten! is specifically geared to attracting Science Fiction (SF) stories between 2,500 and 6,000 words in length.

Stories can be Steampunk, Diesel Punk or straight alternative-history science fiction. They should involve Nazis and Undead, but this is not specifically limited to Nazis or the classic undead ‘race’ of Zombies.

We are looking for new and original twists on this theme with surprising elements. Be fun but most of all be unique. We expect this anthology will appeal to writers of Science Fiction, Steampunk, Dieselpunk, alternative history and horror.

Raus! Untoten will be edited by father of two, Matthew Sylvester, who has been reading and writing fantasy and SF since he first read the Hobbit at the age of 7. He is author of the critically acclaimed ‘Practical Taekwondo: Back to the Roots’, and has been features editor, technical consultant and a regular columnist for ‘Fighters’, ‘Combat’, ‘TKD & Korean Martial Arts’ and ‘Traditional Karate’, the four leading UK martial arts magazines.

Matthew is currently working on the worlds of Shattered Lands and Faraway, adult steamfantasy and child’s steamfantasy. He is also working on a co-operative project with his eldest daughter.

Submissions should be sent to submissions@fringeworks.co.uk as word documents or rtf files.

Your email subject header should read ‘SURNAME/RAUS/WORD COUNT (include word count)

We will pay 12% royalties after cost per story published.

About mattsylvester

Father of two beautiful daughters and married to the beautiful Karen, Matthew has been reading and writing fantasy and science fiction since he first read the Hobbit at the age of 7. Matthew was Features Editor, Technical Consultant and regular columnist for magazines such as ‘Fighters’, ‘Combat’, ‘TKD & Korean Martial Arts’ and ‘Traditional Karate’. These are the four leading martial arts magazines in the United Kingdom. He is also the author of the critically acclaimed 'Practical Taekwondo: Back to the Roots', which has been sold around the world. With regard to his martial arts background he has been studying martial arts since 1991. In 1995 he hosted Professor Rick Clark of the ADK and since then has been studying pressure points and their uses in the martial arts and on the street (initially as a Special Constable and as a Door Supervisor). All of this practical hands-on experience means that he is uniquely placed to write fight scenes that are not only plausible but some of which are based on personal or anecdotal experience. Matthew has had a number of short stories published by Fringe Works, KnightWatch Press, Anderfam Press and Emby Press.
