Online Darwin Anthology Seeks Short Comics

The Tangled Bank is a fiction anthology to be published online marking the 200th anniversary of the birth of Charles Darwin. From the submission guidelines:

Tangled Bank Press invites submissions for The Tangled Bank, an e-anthology of speculative fiction, artwork, comics, and poetry exploring the legacy of Charles Darwin and the theory of evolution. Illuminate — or obscure — the line between the real and the fantastic. The fiction may be of any speculative genre or cross-genre; demand to be included by the quality of your submission. Artwork and poetry need not be strictly speculative in nature, but must engage with Charles Darwin or evolution.

Submissions will be accepted between May 1 and June 30, 2009, with the book due out late this year. The editor, Chris Lynch, is keen to include comic stories of up to 10 pages, with payment of $10 (Australian) per page as an advance against royalties. (All the contributors share royalties of 20% on online copy sales.) Be sure to check out the site links for more information on what Lynch is looking for if you’re interested in contributing.
