    Test Patterns: Creature Features

    Test Patterns is looking for monsters. Line-drawings, of monsters, to be precise. We will collect them and the fans will vote for the ones they like the best, at the Facebook home of the book. The winners will receive 25$ via PayPal, a copy of the anthology, and the admiration of your peers. No previously copyrighted subjects, please.
    Open call for submissions will take place during June 2018, for one month and one month only. Stories should be between 2500 and 7000 words. Accepted mss will net you 100$ American and a contributor's copy of the anthology, plus the respect and admiration of your peers.
    We are looking for stories that feature inhuman creatures, preferably original, with a high degree of literacy. Cover letters are neither requested nor required. Standard ms format, Courier New.
    Our first volume met with general acclaim and decent sales. We're damn near in the black.
    Thanks in advance for your submissions.
