Sword and Mythos: More Inspiration
As I posted yesterday, the Sword and Mythos anthology has opened to submissions, closing February 15, 2013. Sword and Mythos is an anthology paying professional rates (5 cents per word), looking for short fiction of up to 5,000 words.
I have written extensively about sword and sorcery before so I won’t bother you with that. Instead, I am posting a few more images that you may use for inspiration. There is a default desire for many writers to portray sword and sorcery protagonists as male, European and white. Although I will surely buy some stories with such protagonists, I want to have a diverse batch of settings and characters. I hope these photos and paintings may take you in a number of different directions.
