Submissions close 28 February 2020: “Black Dogs, Black Tales” anthology, edited by Tabatha Wood (mainly original work, but with some space for reprints)

“Many writers and creatives are plagued by depression and anxiety, often referred to as ‘The Black Dog.’ Ironically, it is during these dark days that our furry friends become our strongest supporters.

I’m working with a fantastic team to put together a horror/dark fiction anthology with a strong, canine theme where all sales go towards supporting mental health and suicide prevention charity: The Mental Health Foundation of New Zealand.” – Tabatha Wood.

Submissions close 1 March 2020: Year’s Best Aotearoa Science Fiction and Fantasy, Volume 2, edited by Marie Hodgkinson (reprint anthology)

“Editor Marie Hodgkinson is now seeking submissions to the second volume of the YEAR’S BEST AOTEAROA NEW ZEALAND SCIENCE FICTION AND FANTASY anthology.

Marie is looking for short stories (less than 10,000 words) from all genres and subgenres of science fiction and fantasy, by authors from Aotearoa New Zealand, and which were first published in 2019.”
