Call For Submissions

Among the Stars
Editor: Lynn Townsend
Publisher: Coming Together
Deadline: August 15, 2014
Payment: This is a charity anthology. International Still's Disease Foundation will benefit from all proceeds.

Space, the final frontier... We thought we were alone in the universe... Cosmic forces beyond all comprehension... humans and aliens wrapped in 2,500,000 tons of spinning metal, all alone in the night...

Erotica writer and geekess extraordinaire, Lynn Townsend, is looking for a new, erotic spin on science fiction. Called the "literature of ideas," science fiction deals with futuristic settings, alien life forms, advanced technology, space travel, and other innovations, and has been used for centuries to frame stories to explore identity, morality, social structure, and desire. What it means to be human, among aliens. What binds us together, and what keeps us apart.

The final book will contain the best of erotic science fiction, a wide range of characters, pairings, ideas, situations, and exploration, of both worlds and bodies. From the depths of the teams working to build a planet-saving device, to the trenches of alien warfare, to the forbidden longings for other sentient species, Coming Together: Among the Stars will take readers to the very edge of the universe and back.

Standard Port Rules apply:

No underage (aliens must be mature, regardless of how many solar rotations they have currently survived), no non-consensual scenes, no scat, incest, necrophilia (excepting space vampires or other undead), or bestiality (intelligent aliens/robots are exempted). Any pairings or groupings accepted and encouraged. Heat level, medium-warm to nuke my brain! Happily Ever After or Happy For Now not mandatory, but NO snuff. I'm looking for satisfying science fiction and incredible sex first and foremost.

Deadline for submissions is August 15, 2014. Send double-spaced, 12 point font (Times New Roman or Georgia) in .doc or .rtf format, 2,000 — 4,500 word stories to, with "ATTN: Coming Together, your pen-name, your story title" in the subject line. Poetry will also be considered. Indent the first line of each paragraph, do not add extra lines between paragraphs. US English grammar please (double quotes around dialog. If your story requires non-comprehensible speech, other punctuations may be acceptable, brackets, etc. Consistency is key.). Only submit your final, best version of the story; do not send multiple versions of the same story. Up to two stories will be considered from each author. Include your legal name (and pseudonym if applicable and be clear which one is which), mailing address, and up to 75 word bio. For this anthology, please include a line establishing your geek-cred. (For example: Lynn Townsend saw Star Wars for the first time when she was five years old and has been dreaming of the stars ever since.) You will be notified as to the status of your story by no later than September 30, 2014.

This is a charity anthology. Contributors will receive an ebook copy of the publication. Additional compensation in karma. International Still's Disease Foundation will benefit from all proceeds. Still's disease is a form of arthritis that is characterized by high spiking fevers and an evanescent salmon-colored rash. Still's disease was first described in children, but it is now known to occur, much less commonly, in adults.
