New fantasy anthology—Journeys

I hadn’t intended my weekly outing here to turn into all markets all the time, but as long as they keep coming, I’ll keep plugging.

Jouneys anthology coverThis week, we have word that Faie Miss Press issued a call for submissions for its anthology Journeys.

We’re looking for travel to unusual and outlandish places. Character development. A unique plot. Using the pictured navigational instrument would be cool, but the story is key. Length should be between 3,000 and 10,000 words. Please don’t send us anything a fifteen-year-old shouldn’t be reading.

For more, see the publisher’s website.

The “pictured navigational instrument” is a compass sundial. My extremely minimal research on the subject tells me they were usually made of brass and used at sea in the 18th century.

Museum Victoria in Melbourne, Australia, has some great photos and historical information about a Pocket Compass Sundial in its collection.

Answers.com has an article about how to use a compass sundial that sounds plausible, but I have not rigorously investigated its accuracy.

Submissions will be open until August 1.

Next week: What’s ahead at Splickety Magazine.
