BLIND VISION by Marguerite Krause

Steve Miller and Sharon Lee are looking for submissions to an anthology.

The working title is LOWPORT. For the purposes of this anthology, LowPort is that section of the harbor, the spaceport, the city or the space station where the scraping-by folk live; not the star captains in their glittery trade ships, or the merchants in their silks, but the people who work on the docks, or who steal, or whore, or who dream of getting out. This is *not* a shared Liaden Universe anthology -- each author runs what he brings. If you regularly work in your own universe, feel free to submit a story that fits there.... We're open to fantasy, science fiction, and related cross-genre stories -- but not splatter punk.

Payment will be 5-8 cents/word on final acceptance (don't expect any final acceptance before May 2002) and royalties will be distributed on a prorated based on the number of stories in the book rather than word count. Looking for 3,000 to 10,000 words -- but that's got some flex.

We'll be reading through July 15, 2002, with projected publication date Worldcon 2003 (Sept). Please, no electronic submissions, though we will ask for an RTF file of anything we accept. Note: this is an open anthology.
