The first anthology is entitled Sharp of Tooth and Dark of Claw: Operation Cryptid. The book is the brainchild of pulp writer Sean Taylor, who will also edit. In this twist on Mechanoid Press’s Monster Earth series, soldiers take control of cloned cryptids to make the world safe for democracy. Tales will include such famous cryptids as the Jersey Devil, Skunk Ape, Mothman, the Chupacabra and more, and is slated for a summer 2022 release.
What sets this anthology apart is that the writers are donating their stories and the proceeds will go to help Afghanistan veterans. Jeffrey Ray Hayes, of Plasmafire Graphics, will provide the cover.
The book has 9-12 slots for stories between 5 thousand and 7 thousand words in length. The story bible is available here. Stories may be submitted in standard manuscript format to Sean Taylor here: firstname.lastname@example.org. The submission deadline is March 1st, 2022.
