Call For Submissions

Blasphemy Anthology
Editor: Harper Eliot
Publisher: Burning Book Press
Deadline: June 1st, 2014
Intended Publication: October 1st, 2014
Payment: $25.00, payable via Paypal or check

blasphemy, n.
Profane speaking of God or sacred things; impious irreverence.

"It is clear that blasphemy, which is a sin committed directly against God, is more grave than murder, which is a sin against one's neighbor. […] [It] is called the most grievous sin, for as much as it makes every sin more grievous." - Thomas Aquinas, Heidelberg Catechism

In the Western world blasphemy may most commonly refer to an act which is in opposition to the third of the ten commandments: "Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain", and although the Bible is one of the only religious texts which addresses blasphemy directly, it is still a sin recognized in many other religions.

Today, across the world, blasphemy ranges from a subject of comedy, to a social taboo, to a criminal offense. This anthology seeks to explore the transgressive and varied nature of blasphemy, through eroticism.

I am looking for stories set across a variety of religions and ethnicities. I am open to a range of styles and subjects, and the stories do not require a sex act, but they must have, at their heart, both blasphemy and eroticism.

Established authors and new writers are welcomed.

Successful submissions will engage fully and thoughtfully with blasphemy and eroticism and be exceptionally well written.
