Time after Time: and other stories


My intention with this collection is to do as I did with The Welcome: and other Sci-Fi stories, which is to provide a platform for fellow writers to get their work seen in an anthology.

I’m particularly looking forward to interest from fellow members of the Indie Author Support and Discussion (IASD) group.

At present, I personally aim to produce six stories, in the hope that I have at least six stories from guest authors. The target of twelve tales (the new collection) should be original and previously unpublished work. If I can attain twelve tales with donations from guest authors I will accept a selection of previously published work to add as a bonus* to the anthology.


*Bonus stories do not have to fit the word count or the theme of the main collection. To have a ‘bonus’ story added an author must have submitted an original tale.


Stories must meet the following requirements:

– based on the theme ‘Time‘ which offers a wide remit.

– stories must be between 1,000 – 4,000 words.

– Times New Roman, 12pt, 1.5 spacing.

– any genre, except erotica.

– written in English (spelling appropriate to your country of residence).

– must be ready to publish by the appropriate date, provisionally Sunday 5th July 2020.

  1. ‘Time’ as a theme offers all sorts of possibilities and directions for a story. I was featured in ‘The Welcome’ already so I’d say give first shout to those writers/stories that haven’t had a ‘guest’ platform yet. Having said that, I’ve got an idea of a ‘Time’ themed story I’m going to follow up, so if you don’t reach the desired six guest contributions, count me in for the sub’s bench 😎👍

    • Hi Paul. Yes, a valid point on the ‘guest’ platform idea. I’ll keep that in mind, but, of course, if my standard twelve tales are exceeded and somebody like you has a story waiting in the wings … it’s going in. 😀

  2. I agree with Tom, Paul. The best stories should be included, not added as “subs”. Tom is proposing to write six stories, so four more, if mine is up to scratch, shouldn’t be too difficult if we nag a bit when Christmas is over. BTW, I’m also up for beta reading yours, Tom. You did a great job on my massive tomb, and you’ve promised to do One Alone in the World.

    • I’m waiting patiently, Sarah At present, I’m performing final edits on a novel for somebody else but I should be finished next week. I’m also working on a few short stories and Czech Mate. 🙂 BTW, I think your ‘predictive’ is playing up … massive tomb … 🙂
