New Reese Unlimited Anthology Open for Submissions!



Award winning Author Barry Reese has been a mainstay in New Pulp and Genre Fiction for years. Of his many creations, three stand out as notable characters in New Pulp-The Peregrine, Gravedigger, and Lazarus Gray. These three characters are the tent pole around which Reese Unlimited, Pro Se’s first Author imprint, was built and now, for the first time ever Reese and Pro Se announce an open call like no other. Submissions are now open for THREE TO FIGHT, an anthology that will, for the first time, feature stories written by other writers starring Reese’s three most popular and best known creations.

“THREE TO FIGHT,” says Tommy Hancock, “is an idea that has been discussed here and there, having other writers tackle some of Barry’s characters, as has been done in the past. The specific concept, though, for this anthology came from an image by Mark Propst, that Barry shared with me. As soon as I saw it, not only did I know I was looking at the cover for a future book, but the cool idea that has become THREE TO FIGHT basically exploded to life. And now, it’s time to bring the writers ready to get their hands on Barry’s wonderfully imaginative universe in and get this thing rolling.”

Two types of stories will be accepted for this anthology. The first type of story accepted for THREE TO FIGHT must feature TWO of the three characters-The Peregrine, Lazarus Gray, and/or Gravedigger. No story will only feature one and no story will feature all three. Another type of story that can appear in this volume can be stories featuring any TWO teams/supporting casts of the characters mentioned above, even if the characters themselves do not appear. Whole teams do not have to appear in these stories, but, as per the other type of story accepted, only TWO supporting casts/teams may team up, not all three.

Stories for THREE TO FIGHT series must be 8-10,000 words in length. Those interested in submitting a proposal should contact to request the Reese Unlimited Timeline. A proposal of 100-500 words must be submitted to Authors not previously published by Pro Se Productions must submit a writing sample of at least two pages with their proposals.

If accepted, final deadline for completed stories is 90 days following acceptance of proposals. At point of acceptance, copies of all Reese Unlimited works related to the characters will be available to approved writers. Supplemental information may also be provided. Payment will be in the form of royalties, the percentage determined by number of accepted submissions.

THREE TO FIGHT is a part of the Pro Se Open, the company’s anthology project, and is scheduled to be published in the 2019-2021 calendar years, depending on submissions and other factors.
