With the first issue of SARGASSO put to rest (kindle version available here), it’s time to start thinking about next year’s issue! Although, honestly, I think I’m going to have a hard time topping the first issue. We had a great selection of essays, art and stories that really celebrated William Hope Hodgson’s life and work. So let’s see if we can do it again!
SARGASSO is a yearly publication billed as “The Journal of William Hope Hodgson Studies”. Once again I am looking for submissions of essays, art and stories about the life and work of WHH. Essays can be on any aspect of WHH from literary criticism to biographical to bibliographical to anything in-between. Stories should be of some aspect of WHH. Think in the same way that writers now write Cthulhu Mythos stories that are more inspired by H. P. Lovecraft than imitative. And I am always open to art and poetry submissions.
Submissions should be sent to me, Sam Gafford, at: firstname.lastname@example.org with “Sargasso submission” in the subject line. Please send text files as either .doc or .rtf format. Image files should be in .jpg with a minimum of 300 dpi. The deadline for submission is March 30, 2014, with an expected publication date of November 15, 2014 which is WHH’s birthday.
Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
It’s time for another trip back to the SARGASSO!
