Please comment here if you plan to submit a story or artwork for this issue. Artists should specify whether you're submitting a standalone piece, offering to illustrate a story, or doing both. Artists offering to illustrate should provide either links to or thumbnails of past works as examples of style; writers wishing to collaborate with artists (or artists wishing to collaborate with writers) should respond directly to comments to this post. If you don't have an LJ account, please leave alternate ways to get in touch with you. As always, you don't have to sign up to participate, and you're not creating an unbreakable contract by signing up, but it's always a good idea!
The theme for this issue is Strange Aeons: That is not dead which can eternal lie ... but is it sexy? Find out in our traditional spooky October issue!
NOTE: SSBB's October issue traditionally waives that general rule that says all stories submitted here should have shiny happy endings. If you still want your characters to wind up happily ever after, go for it! However, if you're inclined from time to time to take things to more ambiguous conclusions, this is your chance.
