NOTE: Malarkey Books and Mythic Picnic (@mythicpicnic on Twitter) are working on a PDF zine called Derelict that will feature previously published fiction that has disappeared from the internet due to the original publisher closing down. Vol. 1 will feature work from nine writers and be available for sale in the bookstore for $2. Profits will be donated to a 350.org, a nonprofit organization devoted to fighting climate change. If you’re interested in including your work, send an email to email@example.com. Please include the name of the story and its original publisher and publication date. If you want to include the full story you can; please just paste it into the body of the email. Attachments will not be opened.
published fiction, of any length (the longer the better), that has disappeared because the original publisher is now defunct;
want to get your story back in the world*;
believe in climate change and want to raise a little money to fight it;
are not a Big Name***;
then fucking get in touch.
*I’m happy to give you a discount code to give to people who want to download the issue for free. I’ll also be happy to host the story in this section of this website. And of course you’re welcome to publish the story anywhere else at any time.
**We have a small budget, enough to pay $30 per writer, up to nine writers. THANKS MYTHIC PICNIC! You cannot refuse payment, but you can sure as shit buy thirty copies or donate your $$ to fight climate change or promote literacy. You can also keep it and do whatever you want with it. Also, you’ll get a free copy.
***If you’re interested in participating in this thing but are unsure whether you’re eligible based on the Big Name section of the guidelines, you should proceed as normal. You’re probably good.
