Yep, you heard it right.  An anthology about the “World’s Oldest Profession” is looking for submissions.  Stories need to have a genre twist to them—science fiction, fantasy, something that makes them a bit different.  The anthology is “Ladies of Trade Town” and the Press is a good one.  


For more info, go HERE   According to the Website:

The stories selected for this anthology will build on that varied background to tell well-crafted tales of the women and men – and other sentient beings – who “ply the trade” in a variety of times and settings. I’m looking for original science fiction, fantasy, and related genre short stories that entertain and play to the imagination of the reader. Show me something I haven’t seen, read, or written. (For examples of that last, see “Lady Blaze” in Roby James’ Warrior Wisewoman 2  and the title cut of the filk CD that gives this volume its name.) Humor, characters of all orientations and gender-identities, and new writers all welcome.

Despite the theme, I am *not* looking for porn, erotica, or gore-soaked horror. Absolutely no child abuse, incest, or non-consensual situations. Also not looking for poetry, fanfic or proselytizing either for or against the theme.Vekma

STORY LENGTH:: between 3,000 – 10,000 words. Mostly looking for stories in the 5,000 – 6,000 word range, but I’d like to have a few stories on the upper and lower ends in the mix. The upper limit is firm for unsolicited stories.

PAYMENT: $0.02 a word on acceptance of completed anthology manuscript by the Publisher, as an advance against pro-rata share of the royalties after earnout, plus one contributor copy.

READING PERIOD: Opens January 5, 2010, closes June 9, 2010. Manuscripts received before or after this period will be discarded unread, unless prior arrangements have been made otherwise.
