High spirits

Writer-editor Hy Bender (The Sandman Companion and various Dummies books) and book developer Will Paoletto are reading for ‘playful and fun’ new anthology, Ghosts on Drugs. Stories should run between 2-30 pages in standard manuscript format and must feature ‘some version of at least one ghost who’s on some version of at least one drug’. Examples could range from a ghostwriter hooked on cough medicine to an ancient god craving to be worshipped again. Stories combining comedy with another genre such as SF, horror, adventure or thriller, etc, are especially welcome. Submissions must be fresh, entertaining, appeal to a wide audience and provide an emotionally satisfying ending.
