What they want:
Life on the streets ain’t easy. It takes someone tough like me to survive. Danger lurks in the shadows. Yeah, there’s muggers and gangs. Sometimes you get zombies, vampires, and ghouls. And if you’re real unlucky, you run into the scary stuff.
Whether it’s the dirty streets of Detroit, the paved-over cobblestones of London, or the patched asphalt of your hometown, people like me are all that stand between death and your door.
We’re looking for stories with depth that push the boundaries of their genres. Stories that make you think, that comment on the human condition and the social order. Stories that are rich in their language use. Stories that entertain and thrill.
