This includes, but is not limited to, articles about books, movies, TV shows, games, comics, conventions, genre trends and so on. The works must have been originally published online and in the calendar year 2013.You can find the editors' full brief and the submissions form here.

Pandemonium: The Rite of Spring
The Rite of Spring is a digital chapbook set in the shared world of Pandemonium.
The stories in The Rite of Spring should be slightly alternate history. They must be set in 1913 and take place outside of North America. 1913 was a fascinating year, filled with revolution and civil war; the tension between tradition and the new all building to a boiling point. Add in a touch of the speculative or fantastic (or the Weird, unusual or creepy), and anything could happen ...
Although all Pandemonium books and chapbooks stand alone, we recommend reading the previous ones (for example, 1853, A Town Called Pandemonium or the soon-to-be-released Ash to understand the tone, as well as what we mean by "slightly alternate history").
