Side Projects

Those projects that are based on longer fiction or a niche theme - and have no fixed release date - published when completed


An Alternative Line of Inquiry (LGBTQ)

Despite having put a call out with various writing groups, including it looks like this is going to be our only non-starter. Not sure why, but we’ll give it one more round of submission calls before finally closing the project down. Material already received will be put into other anthologies as we go. So, for the last time:

Joseph Hansen had David Brandstetter, Richard Stevenson has Donald Strachey, Katherine V. Forrest has Kate Delafield, Patricia Highsmith’s Mr Ripley, Renee James’s Bobbi Logan… Character first, orientation second – No Erotica or Romance-Centred – we’re looking for Crime, first and foremost – be it Police Procedural through to Cosy. And, as with Dead Man’s Hand, we’re looking for longer pieces that give characters a chance to breathe and develop.
