Things in the Well is an Australian-based publisher of horror and science fiction. They’re seeking submissions for Beyond the Infinite - Tales from the Outer Reaches, a call dark science fiction anthology:
I want stories that are outstanding, different and memorable!  outstanding, different, and memorable! I want something new and exciting! New psychological terrors involving time travel; primal fears triggered by something new that threatens humanity, and new hopes that we may conquer them; new creatures that will make people want to go out and buy the Halloween mask; and new stories of the weird in the outer-reaches of time and space.
“If you need more ideas, take a look outside the typical Sci-Fi genre... Read Clive Barker’s short story ‘The Skins of the Fathers’ or HPL’s ‘The Colour out of space,’ or go back further and look wider to William Hope Hodgson’s ‘The House on the Borderland,’ or Brian Lumley’s ‘The House of Doors’ and ‘Necroscope’ series.
“So, something memorable, dark, and/or something that offers hope and/or despair for humanity… I envision the SciFi element as merely the stage for the story to unfold, cracking our world(s) open to reveal a truer story beyond the genre’s superfice. Gee, that sounds pompous, but you get my (space) drift. I anticipate a (star)fleet of top-notch submissions as usual, so I'm aftememorable stories, a sense of dread, and some level of believability and internal consistency would be more important than a lengthy treatise or a quick shudder.
