Call for Submissions - (Expired)

From Lethe Press (


Before there were “friends of Dorothy” there were the homoerotic antics of the Greek myths. Steve Berman is editing for Lethe an anthology of fantastical gay male-themed stories set during the time of Ancient Greece or involving Hellenism in later cultures (so Victorian scholars studying the classics would be apt). While not every story needs to have one of the gods or heroes, each tale must contain magic and wonder. 

Editorial preference is for original fiction. Be imaginative. Consider the role of myths in the lives of the Greeks and the impact studying/reading such myth has had on gay men.

Stories should be 3,500 to 12,500 words long. Payment is 3 cents a word upon publication. Stories should be submitted to with the subject line FRIENDS OF HYAKINTHOS SUBMISSION. Please send all stories as rtf attachments. 

Full guidelines at above link.

The deadline is January 1st, 2016.
