Giant monsters whose every roar and footstep shake the earth, whose simple stroll through a city wreaks havoc: kaiju. And even though humankind has never really seen such monsters—we tremble at the thought of them and love to shiver as their screen versions make mayhem: the beast from twenty-thousand fathoms, Godzilla demolishing Tokyo, the massive creature in Cloverfield destroying New York, all of Earth warring with the colossal monsters in Pacific Rim. Now, collected here, larger than life short stories—gigantic entertainment certain to rock your world!

I'm now taking reprint submissions for The Mammoth Book of Kaiju, to be published by Constable & Robinson in the UK and Running Press in the US in 2016. Stories from 2,000 to 20,000 words can be emailed at prime@prime-books.com. The deadline is May 4th, 2015. (This Monday! I only have a few slots left, unexpectedly, and that's why I have a short deadline.) You will be notified soon after the deadline if your work is accepted or rejected.

Please spread the word.

May is coming up soon, which means the next issue of The Dark will be coming out. Now I wouldn't mind hitting the five hundred subscribers mark by the first of that month, but I'm short by about a hundred-and-fifty. I've got twenty-nine days . . . can we do it? To help us out we've got a nifty new widget on the website courtesy of Jeremy Tolbert that makes it easier to sign up. If you see “Join The Dark Newsletter to receive each new issue in your inbox!” at the top then it’s working for you smile emoticon

I'm now taking original submissions for The Mammoth Book of Dieselpunk, to be published by Constable & Robinson in the UK and Running Press in the US in 2015. Stories from 2,000 to 20,000 words can be emailed at prime@prime-books.com. The deadline is August 1st, 2014. You will be notified soon after the deadline if your work is accepted or rejected. Pay rate is five cents a word to eight cents a word for originals and three cents for reprints..

If you need to know what dieselpunk is, it's a subcategory of steampunk, essentially, covering the 1920s through the 1950s, including the Roaring Twenties, the Depression, World War II, and even a little beyond that, but here's the thing: I want material from all over the world, I don't want a white-washed representation of this theme.

Spread the word.

if you have any reprints that you'd like to recommend, please feel free to help us out here.

I've sold two anthologies, The Mammoth Book of Steampunk Adventures, and The Mammoth Book of Warriors and Wizardry, to Constable & Robinson / Running Press, both for 2014 releases. (The former is a semi-sequel to The Mammoth Book of Steampunk issued back in 2012, which by the way will see a Russian edition later in 2013, by Azbooka-Atticus.) I'll open a suggestion period within the month, as both books are due by July 2013. (Squee!).

In 2011 a combination of genre professionals and fans from the international scene and the United States gathered together to create the World SF Travel Fund. The fund was set up to enable one or two international persons involved in science fiction, fantasy or horror to travel to a major genre event. This year's recipients are:

Csilla Kleinheincz is a Hungarian-Vietnamese writer living in Kistarcsa, Hungary with her husband and daughter. She is the author of two novels and a short story collection. Her stories can be read in English in the anthologies Interfictions, Heiresses of Russ 2011, and The Apex Book of World SF 2. Some of her stories were translated into Portuguese, Finnish, Czech and Estonian. Csilla is also a translator of works by Peter S. Beagle, Kelly Link, Ursula K. Le Guin and Catherynne M. Valente. She currently works as the editor of the SF/F publishing house Ad Astra, and in her free time edits the Hungarian online SF magazine SFmag.

Rochita Loenen-Ruiz is a Filipino writer of science fiction and fantasy. A graduate of the Clarion West Writer’s Workshop, Rochita was the recipient of the 2009 Octavia Butler Scholarship, and the first Filipina writer to attend Clarion West. Her short fiction has appeared in a variety of online and print publications, including Interzone, Fantasy Magazine, Apex Magazine, Weird Tales, and the anthologies Robots: The Recent A.I., and The Apex Book of World SF 2. In the Philippines, her short fiction has been published in Philippine Panorama, Philippine Speculative Fiction 2, and Philippine Speculative Fiction 4. Rochita currently resides in the Netherlands with her husband and her two children.

The Fund has set up a Peerbackers Project with the hope of raising $3000, enabling two years of running. The Board, tasked with selecting future candidates, is composed of Lauren Beukes, Aliette de Bodard, Nnedi Okorafor, Ekaterina Sedia, and Charles Tan, reflecting the truly international nature of the SF world today. For inquiries and further information please contact co-administrators Lavie Tidhar or Sean Wallace at worldsftravelfund@gmail.com.
