Earth: Giants, Golems and Gargoyles

Earth: Giants, Golems and Gargoyles

Keep your feet on the ground. Sink in roots. Stay grounded. Mother Earth. We come from dust, and to dust we return…

Earth is steady. Solid. Reliable. It is the source of life and the thing which sustains it. But it’s not always serene and peaceful. It takes a lot to stir the earth but when it does, things get dramatic. Quakes swallow cities. Oceans rise. Mountains crumble. Earth is not weak, and it knows no pity.

In this, the second installment of the Elemental Anthology series, I want to explore the many facets of this often under-estimated element and the creatures associated with it so Earth: Giants, Golems and Gargoyles will be filled with stories about every kind of earthy creature you can imagine, not only those listed in the subtitle. I’m looking for trolls, dwarves, earth dragons, goblins, ogres, orcs, grotesques and earthen beasts no one has ever heard of before. And of course this anthology will not be complete without at least one giant, golem and gargoyle!

  1. going to post this in the FB writers market group page where i am a co-administrator… one question… what email address or submission system for sending submissions during the sub window in 2019?

  2. Hey there,

    I’ve got a mildly tongue in cheek surreal story about a bog troll, not sure if itd be a good fit here or not. Worth my while subbing it, would you think?

    1. It’s nearly impossible for me to say, really. But if it’s still available when submissions open up it can’t hurt to try. The worst I can say is no, right?
