Monday Markets - Murder Mayhem / Crime and Mystery - April 29, 2016 (via @flametreetweet)

Flame Tree Publishing is reading until the end of the Month for two anthologies:

Following the great success of last year’s Gothic Fantasy, Deluxe edition short story compilations, Ghosts,Horror and Science Fiction, 2016 sees the publication of four new books. Submissions are open now for the first two, to be published in July/August[:]

Crime and Mystery will feature whodunnits, detective stories and mysteries bordering on the supernatural. Probably the more gentle of the two volumes so think Sherlock Holmes, Father Brown and Poirot.

Murder Mayhem is more hard boiled and hard core. If your story features real monsters, human, serial killer or otherwise, this is the home for them, especially if the story’s POV is the killer’s.

They're after stories to suit the theme from 2000-4000 words, paying 6c USD/word, and happy to accept reprints and multiple subs, so have a shot. Each anthology is open to 30 stories!
