Call for Submissions: Emanations: Isms and Prisms
A call has again gone out into the world from Cthulhu, a call for submission, for resistance is futile:
International Authors and the editors of Emanations are happy to announce a Call for Submissions:Hmmm . . . well, to paraphrase High Priest Tzekel-Kan, this is not what I expected from Cthulhu. Perhaps Tulio was right, the stars are not in position for sacrifice.
Emanations: Isms and Prisms
Emanations is an anthology series featuring fiction, poetry, essays, manifestos and reviews. The emphasis is on alternative narrative structures, new epistemologies, peculiar settings, esoteric themes, sharp breaks from reality, ecstatic revelations, and vivid and abundant hallucinations.
The editors are interested in recognizable genres -- science fiction, fantasy, horror, mystery, local color, romance, realism, surrealism, postmodernism -- but the idea is to make something new, and along these lines the illusion of something new can be just as important. If a story or poem makes someone say, "Yes, but what is it?" then it's right for Emanations. Essays should be exuberant, daring, and free of pedantry. Length is a consideration in making publication decisions, but in keeping with the spirit of the project contributors should consider length to be "open."
Our editorial vision is evolving. Contributors should see themselves as actively shaping the "vision" of Emanations.

There is, however, a Deadline: April 15, 2013. Perhaps the stars shall then be positioned for your sacrifice . . .
