Runs Like Clockwork

An upcoming steampunk anthology from Wyldblood Press

Call for submissions

We love steampunk – zeppelins and pith helmets, clockwork men and steam driven monstrosities. What if the world ran on steam? What if science took a radically different turn around the time of the Age of Empire and crinoline dresses? What if we could unearth new stories about legendary (and hitherto unknown) Victorian adventures? What if there was a new age of adventure – and it ran like clockwork?

We want your stories: up to 10,000 words to with SUBMISSION: STEAMPUNK in your subject line. We’ll pay at £0.01 per word (up to £75) for each original story, and half-rate for reprints. Submissions open until we’re full!

What’s it all about? Check out Cherie Priest, Philip Reeve, Nisi Shawl, Stephen Baxter, Cassandra Clare, Jeanette Ng, Leisel Schwartz, Ian Tregiillis, Tim Powers, Jay Lake or countless others. There you’ll find sky pirates and outlaws, power-hungry empires and all things mechanical. We strongly recommend Ann Vandemeer’s steampunk anthology for more inspiration.

We’re all steam powered now – join the revolution!
