Payment: Contact publisher
Description: As romantic or as filthy as you like. Happily-ever-afters are welcome, but not required. Three or more men engaged in erotic situations together (MMM, MMMM, etc.).

Myths, moons, and mayhem make the perfect threesome—and so do some men. Whether they’re werewolves learning how to fit into the pack, magi seeking to unlock the secrets of the stars, incubi on the prowl, or trolls guarding deep underground worlds, the heroes of this anthology will be male-identified individuals with a thirst for homoerotic group encounters.

I want stories of male ménages that fit the Halloween spirit, though they need not mention Halloween or be set at a specific time of year. Give me your stories of a fairy troupes’ lustful escapades, a ménage a trois of mythical gods, or a modern polyamorous partnership’s first encounter with magic.

Send me tales that encompass a range of diverse, fully realized characters. Unique premises, interesting plots, and innovative storytelling will get my attention. That said, I love a good trope as long as the writer approaches it from a fresh angle.

This anthology will have a Halloween release. More details on the webpage below.
