Open anthology call for stories featuring Clive Barker's Nightbreed characters

In Fall 2014, Tor Books will be publishing an anthology, edited by Stoker Award-winning anthologist Del Howison (Dark Delicacies) and international bestselling urban fantasy author Joseph Nassise (Watcher of the Dark, Limbus Inc.), called Midian Unmade: Tales of Clive Barker's Nightbreed, which...

picks up where Cabal left off, chronicling the lives of the 'Breed as they disperse into the world after the fall of Midian. We're looking for stories of struggle and despair, of hope and sanctification, as the former inhabitants of Midian try to adapt to the world from which they retreated years before. A world that does not want them. A world that will hound them, hunt them, simply for the crime of being different.

Writers have Clive's permission to use the existing members of the Breed that appear in the novella Cabal, in the film Nightbreed, and in the companion volume, The Nightbreed Chronicles, published by Titan Books. Writers also have the option of creating their own unique and fantastical creatures that fit the Nightbreed mold.

Pay will be 5 cents a word up to 5,000 words. All stories must be original. The deadline is September 30, 2013. There's no advantage to submitting early; the editors will not send out any responses under after October 1.

This is a work for hire project "as Clive owns the world in which the project is set. Writers may use their stories in this anthology and have permission to use them in collections of their own works or in annual best-of anthologies, but they may not write and submit additional stories featuring the characters they create for this project to publishing projects elsewhere."

Please read the complete guidelines for all details and submission instructions.
