Maintain the North: An Epic Mountie Adventure Anthology

Note: this publication may close early for submissions if they reach a submission quota; these early closures will not be tracked in this listing.

Whether you are a firm believer that a Mountie always gets his man, can’t resist Canadian politeness, or simply grew up with adventure books, Renfrew of the Royal Mounted, Nelson Eddy, or Due South, we want your fiction, slashfic, fanfic, histfic, pulp, and

adventure stories for an anthology about the epic mythology and folklore of the Mounties.
Maintain the North: An Epic Mountie Adventure Anthology Submissions
We’re looking for sagas, epics, adventures, detective stories, (light) romance (not erotica and not purely women’s fiction), literary work, parodies, and maybe surreality or the fantastical if you hit us in the right bone. We’re not seeking work about modern-day RCMP or Canadian police forces; we want stories of the mythologized past, the cowboys of the North, the daringness of the NWMP from the Norfolk Jacket to the Red Serge, the stories as big as Wild Western lore and legends. We want heart and humor and adventure and darkness and fun and depth and personality. Kudos for the human condition, diversity, strong females, overarching metaphors and allegories, deeper meanings and morals.
