    Dear Cryptophobia,

    What I am afraid of is grief, remorse. I remember seeing PET SEMATARY and CAT’S EYE so I have an idea about a cryptozoological story about cats. Little cats being hurt by humans, BIG CATS like the Michigan Panther lurking somewhere in the wild.

    Let me know if it sounds punishable.

    Hello, I am interested in submitting a story, was wondering if you have a deadline for this project?

    Joseph – Sounds interesting. Nothing makes me personally angrier than animal abusers… good victims for a Crypto-Cat. Definitely send along the pitch when you have it worked out.

    Daniela – It’s an ongoing anthology, so there will be different dates for each issue. Right now we’re looking to do it bi-monthly. It would be nice to have the first issue’s stories chosen by Oct. 10th, but it’s a very elastic deadline.

    Wow, this is an awesome idea. I have to go throw something together. I’ve already got so many ideas, too.

    I’m a writer without an “artistic soul mate,” so this is perfect. Thanks for this chance at something fun that could turn into a huge foot in the door for young creators.

    – Raymond

    No Set page count but would say 8-10 pages would be ideal.

    I submitted mine over the weekend, but I don’t have an artist. Should I worry with finding one prior to finding out if my script is accepted?

    It helps to have an artist but if selected we’ll find someone to pair you up with.

    I haven’t even heard back from the first submission, yet I’m already formulating my next script.

    Just try to stop me!

    What happened to the list of accepted stories? Is this anthology still a go? Haven’t seen any updates in a while.
