OPEN CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS – CALLING ALL WRITERS
Odd Tales Productions is pleased to announce the opening of a new series of ebook short stories, starring the astonishing INFINITY TRUST. Created by editors Atom Mudman Bezecny and Katherine Avalon, the Infinity Trust is a Multiversal league of heroes assembled to battle evil on a cosmic scale, whose adventures have been partially depicted in the book QUINARY INFINITIES and the two-volume anthology GATHERINGS I and GATHERINGS II. We are calling on writers to help bring the Infinity Trust to life, by penning their own stories starring the Trust's extensive cast of characters. These characters are outlined in the course of QUINARY INFINITIES and GATHERINGS, as well as other books published by Odd Tales. These works will serve as the bibles for these characters. Authors are encouraged to experiment as long as they stay within what has been previously established. It is worth noting that some of these characters are deceased, or have left the team. All stories featuring these characters should depict episodes of their lives as members of the Infinity Trust. Interaction between members of the Trust is encouraged, but your story should star your chosen character.
All stories should be between 2,000 and 20,000 words in length. Payment for each story shall consist of a free digital copy of your work, as well as 85% royalties on all sales of the ebook. BIPOC authors and LGBT+ authors are encouraged to submit, and will be given priority.
QUINARY INFINITIES and the two GATHERINGS books are essential reading for this project. Characters available for use are listed below. If characters are listed in pairs or groups, all characters in that group must be used.

We will also be publishing stories of THE BRUTE, who was detailed in Atom Bezecny's book of the same name, though the Brute is not a member of the Infinity Trust and will not become one. Stories featuring the Brute may not exceed the timeline of events as outlined in the book, as the Brute's future will be definitively explored in some of Bezecny's forthcoming stories. Please do not request to write other characters for this project at this time. Submit all stories and questions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
