Making Tracks: Submission Deadline extended for Stations Anthology

Hoxton, View to the City copyright Cherry Potts 2012

Arachne Press’ paean to the glories of the Overground is gradually progressing, although there seem to be engineering works, and possibly signal failures.

We have stories in place for Brockley, Canada Water,Crystal Palace, Dalston Junction, Forest Hill, Haggerston, Highbury & Islington, New Cross, New Cross Gate, Rotherhithe, Shadwell, Surrey Quays, Sydenham and West Croydon.

We have stories promised for Canonbury, Wapping and Whitechapel.

So if you would like to make your mark with a tale from the tracks, we are still looking for stories featuring Anerley,  Hoxton, Honor Oak Park, Norwood Junction, and Shoreditch High Street, we’d like to hear from you. Any genre except children’s or Erotica; maximum length in the region of 2,500 words.  We like stories with strong narratives and engaging characters we also like weird, but aren’t keen on gore. You can post your story in the message box on the contact page.

Deadline has been extended to Sunday 15th May 2012

  1. I had started a new story using the victorian detective, Inspector Bucket (I have a novel coming out soon dealing with his adventures (Inspector Bucket and The Beast – Dahlia Publishing) but couldn’t meet the last deadline. I might be able to make the next!
    I was planning to write about Highbury and Islington but setting it in 1872 when the station was first built. Might that be acceptable if the story is good enough?

    • A good question, Michael. I’m happy to consider stories that have a spiritual element to them, and stories with characters with religious beliefs (regardless what they are), but I wouldn’t be very keen on religious moral tales, if that makes sense. (I was going to say I wouldn’t want Christ and his Angels arriving at the Sainsburys at NXGate, or Buddha arriving at Croydon, but actually that quite appeals…)
      best wishes
