Hi. I'm the publisher behind Paper Golem LLC, a speculative fiction small press.
I'm toying with the idea of starting a new book project / series. A small anthology, maybe 20 or so stories, from 20 different authors. The catch is that all of the authors write their stories starting with the same handful of prompts, likely a person, a place, and a thing.
I like the idea of an anthology that has a very loose theme, and seeing where so many different authors would go given the same simple starting points.
The pay for the authors likely be limited to a pro-rata share of any profits after expenses, so barring some insane best-seller fluke, no one (least of all me) would get rich on this.
I'm skimming through DeviantArt, looking for possible cover images.
