Like RuneWright, these folks are new to the scene, but I have to admit I like their idea. Here’s a quote so you get a precise idea of what they’re after:
In many ways, The Kiss Kiss Bang Bang! Review is an experiment in emulating weird things. At the beginning of each quarterly reading period, we post the full text of a classic pulp text – adventure, horror, westerns, detective thrillers, whatever strikes us. What we look for are contemporary creative works that respond in some way to the selected text. Accepted submissions are published on a quarterly basis in a clean pdf format online. An original podcast “radio drama” recording of the story prompt will accompany the publication of each issue. All work published in our quarterly issues will be considered for inclusion in our annual print anthology. Cheap paper, cheaply produced. Argosy style. A lot of pages, a lot of weird stories. Subscribers to the print annual will also receive a recording of the entire year’s podcast “radio dramas” in an easily discarded, rapidly produced audio cd.
If I wasn’t neck-deep in three projects I might take a crack at this one myself… in fact, I still might. They’re looking for any genre that responds to their theme (see above and review their site) and they’ll take poems, flash fiction up to 1k, short fiction up to 7,500k and novelettes up to 15,000k words. They’re a quarterly that goes print, electronic and audio, so this would be a good way to get your name out there, and, like I said, it sounds like a neat project. Oh, and the deadline is March 30th.
