The Submission Grinder, milling your submissions into something useful

Suddenly, Cows!
Alban Lake Publishing

Things are too serious around here. We have all sorts of absolutely amazing stories of dark terrors, shapeshifting monsters, and epic fantasies. We really need to lighten the mood. To that end we present Suddenly, Cows! We want silly stories of experimentation from all sorts of places; beit the 1950’s style “scientist” using their “radio tubes” to stop aliens, or a wizard trying to figure out how to create a better spell for conjuring demons, or even someone of today trying to do something as simple as wash a load of laundry and ending up in the 6 and ½ dimension. We want silly, lighthearted tales that illustrate no matter how well planned something might be, that tiny bit of chaos that keeps the universe running can enter in and wreck the best laid plans.
