PS Publishing is looking for stories for it's Catastrophia anthology.

Here's a brief outline of the guidelines:

Edited by Allen Ashley

Catastrophia will be a collection of stories loosely themed around the theme of catastrophes, disasters and post-apocalyptic fiction. I will be looking for original, unpublished stories which deal in a modern manner with these classic SF- and Horror-based tropes.

Rights and other technical details
I’m looking only for original material – no reprints. I will be buying First British and First North American Rights for your story with a one-year moratorium subsequent to publication. I can offer 3p/6c a word up to a maximum payment of £100 / $200 per story. The book will be published by PS Publishing and the current expected pub date is summer 2010.

.The submission period will open on 1st August 2008 and will last until 31st May 2009 or whenever the book is full. Unless specified otherwise, all submissions should be sent as disposable hard copies to:

Allen Ashley
Editor: Catastrophia
110d Marlborough Road
Bounds Green
London, N22 8NN

Please include an email address for reply or a stamped and addressed envelope. Response time will be three months or less.

Stories should ideally be in the range of 2000 to 6000 words although both longer and shorter tales will be considered.

I've got a story I'd like to send, but with the convenience of e-mail, I've grown out of the habit of printing things out. I wish I could submit it electronically. How lazy can you get, right?

Nice payrate! I don't think I have anything that would fit their guidelines, though, or at least nothing good enough that I'd want to mail it overseas for an attempt.

Hmmmn...I wonder if they'd be interested in a 7,962 word post-zombie-apocalypse story...

Good luck to everyone who enters.

And yeah, I've grown very lazy with this whole email revolution too.
