Grimbold BooksGrimbold Anthologies: Forgotten Sidekicks, and other anthologies
We all know what happens when the hero saves the day, but what about their sidekicks? Too often the hero is held high and celebrated whilst their sidekicks and comrades are brushed to the side; their own battles forgotten, and their actions airbrushed to nothingness from the tales of victory. They need stories about those sidekicks. They are also accepting submissions for two other anthologies – ‘Unexpected Heroines’ and ‘Lost Gods’ – see guidelines.
Deadline: 30 November 2018

Ah, those loveable robots, androids, and cyborgs, performing plenty of chores and dangerous jobs so us humans can remin out of harm’s way. But… What happens when something goes wrong? If your computer has a hardware fault, would it kill you in your sleep? Would your microwave turn on only when it was opened? What about robots living a life of crime, Asimov’s 3 Laws of Robotics be damned? The only real requirements for this anthology will be that a major character must be mechanical or electronic in nature and they’re doing something nefarious.”  They for the stories to have a dark undertone but welcome humor.
