New Anthology Call – Glen Must Die!

All of us have that one person that we give crap to. They’re good people, we like them, we’re friends, and the way we communicate our love is by endlessly tormenting them. For some reason, they just become the butt of all the jokes—maybe because they have it coming, but probably because they’re the ones in the group strong enough to take it with good humor and still love us back.

In short, every group has a Glen.

This is not an anthology made in honor of Glen and those like him. Who wants to honor them, anyways?

This is an anthology made to honor all such friendships, and those people who really need to see Glen die. Looking for short stories 2-5k words long. Stories must include the following elements:

  1. Any form of speculative fiction (science fiction, fantasy, etc.).
  2. The words “crystal palace” must appear in the story at some point. Context is irrelevant.
  3. There must be a character named Glen that appears somewhere in the story. Glen must die in the course of the story.

Payment will be $.03/word pending a Kickstarter launch of the anthology. Benchmarks on the Kickstarter launch will be set to increase pay to pro rates ($.08/hr). Submit stories to Frog Jones at frog@jonestales.com no later than Jan 1, 2025.
