In 2011, Lethe Press queered the Sherlock Holmes canon with A Study in Lavender, and now we’re putting together a new collection on the theme, A Scandal In Gomorrah. The first volume explored the queer aspects of Doyle’s characters in Victorian society and introduced us to a realm of hidden gay characters and stories. In the sequel, we’re looking to expand the scope of stories into new realms.
I’m looking for stories that fall into one of two categories:
A few things to bear in mind:
Payment: 3c per word (Ideally seeking original fiction, but reprints considered at a rate of 1c per word)
Story length: 2k-6k approx. No iron-clad upper limit, but pay cap at 6k.
Submissions or queries to: email@example.com (Please feel very free to query with questions, suggestions or concepts for a story prior to submission.)
Closing date: New Year’s Day, 2017
[Extra note: if you are aware of existing Holmes/Holmesian stories with queer content (yours or otherwise), it would be great to be pointed towards them so we can read to consider for reprint. There’s a lot of existing stories for me to search through out there, and a nod in the direction is very helpful.]
