Flame Tree Fiction

Gothic Fantasy | Successful Submissions | Lost Atlantis

Posted by Gillian Whitaker

We’re excited to announce the list of authors selected for Lost Atlantis Short Stories! Publishing in July 2023 in the UK, and on-sale in September in North America, the book joins our thriving series of Gothic Fantasy hardback anthologies, which combine tales by modern writers with classic fiction on each theme. Once again, as well as our usual open submissions, we partnered with Danni Blechner of Conscious Dreams Publishing to help widen our reach, seeking out a range of stories inspired by this fascinating theme. Many thanks again to everyone who submitted stories for consideration, and congratulations to the below:
