Mixed Tape Update: All good things...

I've decided that the upcoming TG Mixed Tape will be that last that I curate. It's been a good run. If you contributed a story to any one of the collections, thank you. If you enjoyed reading our short sorties, thank you too. A readers time, willingly given, is all that we authors can ask for.

As this is an ending of sorts, I would like the content of my final collection as curator to skew more reflective and sentimental. As such, I am looking for stories that address the theme of "Hope".

Mixed Tape Update

Hey all, Persnickety here, curator of the Mixed Tape collections.

The latest Mixed Tape is still coming along at a snails pace. At this point, an early February release doesn't look likely. As for the new release date, it'll happen when it happens, and it'll happen when we get at least 10 stories. I want to kick of the year with something substantial.

If you would like to be part of the collection, read on. This time around I'd also like to shine a spotlight on some of the longer stories you folks write, if you'd like on that, you'll find more information after the jump.

The Mixed Tape Mythos Stories

THE MIXED TAPE MYTHOS STORIES

By Persnickety Bitch

In the Australian outback a solitary traveller stops at a strange roadside store and leaves with a mysterious cassette. A homeless busker tells of the night that they became a conduit for a wild and otherworldly force. A young writer meets a man with no shadow. We will encounter her again, a student at an academy for witches and warlocks. The results of a pitched and secret battle in a secluded valley shapes humankind’s destiny amongst the stars. The wondrous and terrifying magic of the Mixed Tapes links disparate tales of sex, superheroes, fantastical kingdoms, and human and inhuman monsters. If you have ever wondered what the little indulgences that frame my anthologies add up to, here they are, all in one place, for your reading pleasure.

Concludes with an announcement regarding the first Mixed Tape of 2016
