On the side of a hill in the deep forest green, tracing a sparrow on snow-crested ground,
blankets and bedclothes the child of the mountain sleeps unaware of the clarion call.
On the side of a hill, a sprinkling of leaves washes the grave with silvery tears,
a soldier cleans and polishes a gun.
War bellows, blazing in scarlet battalions, generals order their soldiers to kill
and to fight for a cause they've long ago forgotten

Open Anthology Calls

For all those writers out there, in case you missed them.

John Joseph Adams (aka the Slush God) has announced an open call for his anthology "Federations." This is your basic Space Opera set up. Five cents per word up to 5000 words, not shabby at all. Plus, John is a nice guy.

Eric Reynolds over at Hadley Rille books and Jay Lake are editing an anthology called "Footprints." They announced the basic story is aliens find out footprints on Earth's Moon. Humans are long gone. What do these aliens make of this? Flat payment of $40 on publication for 4000-10000 words. Eric has been doing some good work, several short stories he has publish in his anthos have been nominated for awards.
