New! Havok Contest — Mythical Clashes

Attention speculative fiction
authors …

Enter our flash fiction writing contest and you could win a $100 Amazon gift card!

We’re looking for stories under 1,000 words that best depict our theme:

Mythical Clashes

Dragons. Unicorns. Titans. Leprechauns. Chupacabras.

You’ve heard the stories, but never like this—never all at once. Imagine every legendary beast and being throughout history thrown onto a battlefield for an all-out brawl.

A medieval dragon heats things up on mount Olympus. A leprechaun slips from a Kraken’s grasp. A demigod tames a unicorn. Mermaids invade ancient Egypt via the Nile. Any mythical combination you can come up with is fair game in our Mythical Clashes issue. We’re looking for battles of legendary proportions as creatures and universes collide.
