Foolish Earthlings! You will SUBMIT to Weird Library Science!

Foolish Earthlings! You will SUBMIT!

The fate of your very planet relies on you creating enough GLOW (Galactic Library Oriented Wisdom) Power to defeat the evil BEIGE (Book-Eating, Information-Grinding Entities).

How do you create GLOW Power? Using your TOWERING imagination you must create the most ACTION-PACKED stories, comics, drawings, photographs, recipes, knitting patterns, phony letters, fake news items, bogus advertisements, made-up issue blurbs, and whatever else you can think of as long as it is filled with THRILLS, EXCITEMENT, and LIBRARIES. Mad science, weird fantasy, occult horror, spicy mysteries, noirish romances, intense adventures, and whatever else.

Stories can be about librarians, library technicians, library cats, sentient libraries, etc. Write about a library that uses ALIEN TECHNOLOGY, a cataloguing system so obtuse that it drives those that try to use it INSANE, or a library worker who has to track down a Nazi zeppelin in order to get an OVERDUE BOOK. As long as your contribution is somewhat library focused and filled with the requisite GLOW Power it's fine!

So get out your typewriters, crayons, and drawing sticks (or whatever it is you Earthlings create with) and create something or the Earth you call home is DOOMED!

Weird Library Science is the 9th (!) issue of Two-Fisted Library Stories, an anthology zine featuring pulp-inspired fiction, comics, and art created by you (hopefully!) concerning libraries and library workers.

Submission Deadline: December 31st, 2017 January 31st, 2018

Publication: Spring, 2018
