Bring your stories of intriguing museums old and new, original and reprint. Anything goes, so long as it’s an SFF story about an intriguing museum.

The story must be about (and likely take place in) a museum with an interesting concept, which should be essential to the plot, not just background.

Stories should be between 1,000 and 8,000 words in length. If you have a very strong case for a story that’s slightly longer, contact me before submitting, at www.metaphorosis.com/about/.

Original stories will be paid at a rate of $.01/word. Reprints will be paid a flat rate of $20/story. The anthology will likely tend toward originals. Authors submitting originals should expect an extensive editorial process with several rounds of revision.
