Monday Markets - A Midas Clutch: Tales of Opulent Horror - Jan 2018 (via @lethepress)

Lethe Press is looking for tales of opulent horror for their anthology: 'A Midas Clutch':

Lethe is seeking weird and eerie stories of people consumed by wealth. Each tale must be suffused with the trappings of the well-to-do. Decadence should be paramount. However, we do not want these tales to be moralistic; we're celebrating those who can buy the finest things in life...they just happen to be the leads in a horror story. The better stories will incorporate status and wealth as both character traits and elements of the plot. For an excellent example, we recommend "Dirty American" by Lara Elena Donnelly or "His Mouth Will Taste of Wormwood" by Poppy Z. Brite. Our preference is for stories that are contemporary but we are willing to read and purchase a few historical tales.

They're after short fiction between 4,000 and 14,000 words, paying 5c/word for original, and 2c/word for exceptional reprints. You have a lot of lead time here - they're closing in January of 2018.
