The Decadents
edited by Steve BermanWan poets with ink-stained fingers and laudanum-tainted breath. Hirsute bankers embezzling funds to pay for nightly trysts at less-than-savory clubs. Lethe Press is seeking gay male short stories, either reprints or original works, for an anthology of historical fiction that embraces the Decadent Movement. Stories may have fantastical or horrific elements. All work must be queer positive (i.e., the men and trans-men in the tale cannot be self-loathing, cannot be punished because they have same-sex attraction). Stories should be set during the 18th or 19th century. Stories need not be set in European cities.

Other details: stories should be from 4,000 to 14,000 in length. Payment for reprints is 1.5 cents per word. Payment for original fiction is 5 cents a word. All payment is upon publication in Summer of 2019.

Deadline is May of 2018. Please submit to Steve Berman at lethepress @aol.com with the Subject line of The Decadents – Submission. Include an embedded copy letter with biographical details, if the story is original, and some sense of prior publications (if any). ​
