Tyche Books has announced the call for a new Canadian superhero/ supervillain/ superpowered anthology, MASKED MOSAIC, to be co-edited by Camille Alexa and Claude Lalumière.
From the Tyche Books press release:
We are thrilled to announce that Claude Lalumière and Camille Alexa will edit our next anthology, Masked Mosaic: Canadian Super Stories. As a tip of the hat to Joe Shuster, co-creator of Superman, Claude and Camille are seeking . . . Superheroes! Supervillains! Masked vigilantes, superpowered antiheroes, super scientists. Adventurers into the unknown, costumed crimefighters, mutant superterrorists . . . we want to see any and all permutations of the superhero genre, but with a uniquely Canadian perspective. Stories must involve a Canadian element — setting, politics, culture, history, characters, etc. Any genre-mashing goes: alternate history, crime, horror, romance, SF, fantasy, surrealism; we want a variety of tones, approaches, subgenres, cultural perspectives, etc. We’re especially interested in submissions where setting (a specific city, region, or province) plays an essential role, but we’re open to other types of stories, too.
Submissions open on June 1, 2012. Deadline will be August 1, 2012 for spring 2013 publication.Masked Mosaic will only be open for submissions from Canadians (Canadian residents, landed immigrants, Canadian citizens, Canadians living abroad, etc).
