Because the magazine is a 96-page quarterly, stories are kept to under 6k words, typically, but my understanding is that despite that, they receive many longer submissions and that a few of them were so good they wanted to find a way to use them.
To that end, they are presenting a book-length anthology called Occult Detective Quarterly Presents, featuring stories anywhere from 8 to 25k (novella) length. They are currently running a kickstarter to gather funds for this anthology, and, if all goes well, may do another volume.
Below is a list of the authors for the first volume:
BEV ALLEN is an English writer who combines the wry with the fantastical, as in her collection ‘A Solemn Curfew’, which draws on the appetites and folklore of England, but who then defies expectations by writing SF/fantasy adventures liberally laced with soldiers. She describes herself as “a crazy old woman who writes weird short stories about things like a bloke having sex with his garden pond”.
ADRIAN COLE is an inhabitant of Southwest England. He has had over twenty novels published, and is known to science fiction/fantasy readers for his “Dreamlords” trilogy and other books. His latest gritty collection “Tough Guys” was released last year. A prolific short story writer, his Nick Nightmare series already has many occult detective fans in its grip, and he is also writing classic weird fantasy for publications such as Skelos Magazine.
AMANDA DEWEES is an American author who received her PhD in English literature from the University of Georgia and likes to startle people by announcing that her dissertation topic was vampire literature. She is already known for her stylish dark romances and thrillers, such as “With This Curse” which won the 2015 Daphne du Maurier Award in historical mystery/suspense. Her most recent novel “The Last Serenade” features the same Sybil Ingram as her story in this issue.
SAM L EDWARDS is a writer who likes dark poetry, dark fiction and darker beer. Though a Texan by nature, he is currently residing in California, from where he explores horror and weird themes in both prose and poetry, including his ‘Joe Bartred’ series of contemporary occult detective tales.
WILLIAM MEIKLE is a Scottish writer, now living in Canada, with over twenty novels published in the genre press and more than 300 short story credits in thirteen countries. His work includes all manner of speculative, supernatural and adventure fiction, with a sideline in continuing the Carnacki stories of William Hope Hodgson. When he's not writing he drinks beer, plays guitar, and dreams of fortune and glory.
ROBERT POHLE is originally from the Delaware Valley, and is a veteran writer of Westerns, historical and speculative fiction, as well as Holmesian fiction and his work on the films of Christopher Lee.
CHARLES R RUTLEDGE is the co-author of three books in the Griffin and Price Crime/Horror series, Blind Shadows, Congregations of the Dead, and A Hell Within, all written with James A. Moore, and his short stories have appeared in numerous anthologies. Charles lives in the Atlanta area with a cat named Bruce and far too many books.
