Another Pirate Story Opportunity

I just saw that Mary left the following writing opportunity information (Pirate Stories again!) in the comments of my prior post:

Fast Ships, Black Sails, to be published by Night Shade Books, wants exciting, bone-rattling pirate fiction set in the past, present, or future, covering the full spectrum of parrot-carrying, booty-taking, grappling-hook pirate adventure and fun. Submissions should be between 3,000 and 10,000 words, with payment set at 5 cents per word to 10k, two contributor copies, and a share of royalties. No simultaneous submissions. No boring stories. Electronic submissions to peglegparrots at in Word or RTF format. Snail mail submissions to POB 38190, Tallahassee FL 32315, USA, with SASE for reply only. We will read from November 1, 2006, through the end of February, 2007. – Captains Ann and Jeff VanderMeer

They don’t accept sim-subs, so you probably can’t get in this time…but I’d keep an eye on this website…if your story doesn’t get picked up by Shimmer…maybe this could be a place to submit it to in the future…

Thanks Mary!
