Our 'general' category is our standard, catch-all category, and runs during every submission period. It includes the range of styles and genres that feature in all of our anthologies: literary or general fiction, light supernatural or science fiction, and combinations of those.
If you've read one of our anthologies, you'll know the kind of thing we're looking for. If not, the best way to get a sense of what we publish is to pick up a recent volume. Our latest, Somewhere This Way, is out now.
