It’s been a few days now since we started this whole thing off, and the response has been overwhelming. We’ve had emails from writers all over the world wanting to submit stories to the anthology, or offer help in other ways.

So first up I want to say THANK YOU!! It really has been amazing, and humbling, and just plain wonderful to be part of this. We couldn’t put this together without you all, and while there is a lot of work ahead, we’re confident this is going to be great.

At the moment we have over twenty authors who have confirmed that they are submitting. Stories have begun to trickle in – some people are writing brand new stories for this project, and others are offering us reprints that fit our requirements.

The very first day, after I had Anna on board, I emailed an amazing author to ask if he would considering letting us reprint one of his stories for the anthology. I am really excited, thrilled, and pleased to announce that Neil Gaiman has said yes! We’ve got a beautiful piece lined up for the anthology, which is very fitting for the occasion. I was blown away by his generosity, and the speed with which he replied. So thank you, Neil Gaiman.

We have many other wonderful writers on board, and we’re looking forward to making further announcements and filling out the contributors list in the near future.

On that note, I’d once again like to say thank you for all the submissions, but we’ve reached a point where we unfortunately need to close off unsolicited submissions. Whilst we would love to read stories and accept submissions from new writers, we have a very short time-frame in which to pull this together. If we have contacted you, or someone else has contacted you on our behalf, then please do still get in touch, but we really need to focus on those who have been asked to submit for now. Otherwise thank you so much for your interest, good luck with your writing, and if you would like to help us out there are some suggestions in the FAQs.
