Scope to be very imaginative with this horror antho - as long as a story is set in a city (either real / fantasy) or perhaps even the city itself is the creature / monster / killer, then you're working along the right lines.
As it's an A - Z, please email or post in the forum requesting a letter...stories will follow the format "L is for London....P is for Paris" etc but no problem also if your story has it's own sub-title.
Send queries with CITIES in the subject line to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Single space, indent paragraphs, don't leave an extra space between paragraphs. Please put your bio (100 words max) at the end of the story in the manuscript. No page numbers, headers or footers, and no embedded text. Closed when filled.
No payment or contributor copies, this is for the love only but your very best work please.

other than that - everything is currently up for grabs!!! Dean
Since G hasn't been taken I could possibly write something else about fictional Gotham, New Jersey, the urban setting for my Jack Petrov private eye/vampire hunter stories from the two Weird City anthos and a few others (including one unpublished novel).
