You know that guy Bradley Sands, well he's...

Bust Down the Door and Eat all the Chickens, has an interesting anthology looking for submissions.

Here are the guidelines for: Bradley Sands is a **** (word removed due to the fact the blogger also writes for children).

Just because the anthology is entitled BRADLEY SANDS IS A **** does not mean that every story must feature Bradley Sands.

- Titling your story is futile as all stories will be called "Bradley Sands is a ****."
- The story need not be about the evisceration/ridicule/humiliation of Bradley Sands.
- The story should be bizarro/irreal/surreal. If you don't know what that means you should probably do some research.
- If I reject you, it doesn't mean I don't like you or your writing. It means the story wasn't correct for this anthology. No hard feelings.
- Send your story as an attachment. Include your authorial name and email address with the story. If this isn't included, you will not get a response. Sorry.

Here are some more guidelines:

BRADLEY SANDS IS A **** strives to be the most ill-conceived, poorly planned e-anthology out there. Please send your stories to me, Andersen Prunty, at Include "Bradley Sands is a ****" in the subject line. I will send you an email letting you know it has been received. I will kind of edit the anthology. Every story will be titled "Bradley Sands is a ****." I should come away from your submissions feeling that Bradley Sands is a ****. How you make me feel this way is entirely up to you.

Submissions should be 1000 words or less.

They should be bizarro, weird, funny, angry, or a combination.

You are welcome to submit them to me whenever but I will not begin reading them until September 1, 2008 (This is a lie. Please see above.) I will stop reading them December 1, 2008 (This is still true). In January 2009, the selected stories will appear as a free .pdf e-anthology published by BUST DOWN THE DOOR AND EAT ALL THE CHICKENS and co-edited by Bradley Sands. Readers will vote on the selected stories (I don't actually have any idea how we'll do this. Send me an email if you would like to help or have any ideas). The author of the winning story will be paid 100 American dollars and the much sought after title of Bradley Sands' arch-nemesis.

How can you not send something to this? :) And if I've left any **** words un-**** - oops!

I can't decide if this is the worst idea in the world or the best one. But now I have all these ideas... must... resist... temptation...

What mad and crazy fun. :)

If nothing else, they are a fun group to get rejections from. Their mags are hilarious.

The chance to be someone's arch-nemisis alone is worth it!

It's just to bizarre to ignore.
