Helter Skelter's New Writing anthology

The online magazine Helter Skelter is inviting submissions for volume 3 of its New Writing anthology. I'm one of the judges; the theme this time is "Strange Love", and the submission guidelines and other details are here. Do pass the word around to anyone who might be interested.


  1. Strange love. I am thinking of instances that can fit that description from the world of movies.

    Reckless Moment : James Mason, a blackmailer, sacrificing his life to help out the victim of his trade

    Life and Death of Colonel Blimp : A British colonel seeking out the image of his first love in the course of his life with Deborah Kerr playing 3 roles - each 15-20 years apart in age.

    Nashville : A young wayward youth adores his idol - a pop singer - with great enthusiasm. But then discovers that she is endorsing a "fascist" candidate prompting him to kill her!

  2. Shrikanth: oh dear, now you're making me wish I could make a submission for the anthology!

  3. I thought you were not interested in writing fiction :-)

  4. Will the stories be in print? Or just on the website?
