Taken from the Nomadic Delirium Press blog:
For those of you that are interested in submitting to our upcoming anthology, Disharmony of the Spheres,
we've currently accepted just over 20,000 words of fiction. We're
looking for a final length of 60,000-80,000 words, but you never know
how quickly it might fill up, so please get your submissions in...
Disharmony of the Spheres
will be a science fiction anthology in which the main character must be
battling some type of mental illness. While we will consider stories
where the character is dealing with an illness like schizophrenia or
multiple personality disorder, what we really want to see is characters
that are battling an illness like depression, bipolar disorder, anxiety,
PTSD, etc. This is meant to be an uplifting collection of stories, so
the characters must overcome their illness to defeat whatever they’re up
against. They don’t necessarily have to overcome their illness
completely, but they must show that even when suffering from a mental
illness, a person can still achieve great things.
We want stories that are 2,000 words or longer. All stories must be
science fiction, and they must fit into the guidelines as outlined
What we’re paying: We will pay $5 per
story for one time rights, and we will also pay two contributor copies.
This is less than we would normally pay for an anthology, but half of
all of the profits from this book will be going to the Yellow Ribbon
Suicide Prevention organization, which helps to battle teen suicide. We
will consider reprints for this anthology.
Where to send your stories:
All stories should be sent to editor (at) nomadicdeliriumpress (dot)
com. The subject line should include “Disharmony submission.”
Response times: We will respond to all submissions within two months.
