It looks like Night Shade Books editor Jeremy Lassen has a bunch of free time on his hands, as he announced yesterday:
If you have a completed zombie novel, and it doesn’t suck, please send it to [email protected] with the subject line “Zombie Novel Submission.”
Please attach the FULL manuscript as an RTF or Word file. In the body of the email, please include a SHORT cover letter covering your personal information and any relevant publication history. Do not give me a summary of your zombie novel. It’s a zombie novel. That’s all I need to know.
The open submission period for these zombie novels is the next 2 months… September and October of 2008. If it is past October 31, 2008, please do NOT submit zombie novels to the above address. They will be ignored.
I don’t know if Jeremy thought that his announcement would appear in a venue like Tor.com, but that’s the kind of scamp that I am.
So, got that zombie novel sitting on your hard drive looking for a
brain uh, publisher? Send it on to Jeremy!
