KnightWatch Press Call for Submissions #3 – Killer Bees From Outer Space

I’m posting three calls for submissions on behalf of Theresa Derwin, who is temporarily indisposed. So, here is the third and last, and possibly the most exciting of them all!

Call for Submissions – Killer Bees From Outer Space

We all like a good B Movie. Especially those wonderfully cliché films from the 1950s and beyond such as Plan 9 From Outer Space, I Was a Teenage Werewolf or even the most recent additions to the genre such as Sharknado. There is a sort of guilty pleasure and a sense of fun to be found in these films, and we are hoping that the sense of fun can be transferred to the short story form.

To be edited by Theresa Derwin and published by KnightWatch Press, Killer Bees from Outer Space will be an anthology of stories playing with the clichés and ideas found in B Movies. But bee-ware, I do not want to be swarmed by stories about killer bees or other forms of insects, after all there are so many fun tropes to be used from the many examples out there. I have already received two bed stories so do not wish to receive anymore. Think outside the box. Escape of the 50ft Gorilla anyone?
