JTF-13 Legacy Anthology Open Call
Three Ravens Publishing

Note: This is a shared world anthology.

There is a thin wall between our world and that of the Fae and, during times of war, it is easily stepped through. The passions and emotions stirred by violence and combat bleed over, and the supernatural often awake from a long slumber to meddle in mortal affairs. Then also, there are the humans who purposely force that wall down seeking glory and power. Either way, there have always been those among us who have been willing to meet the supernatural threat with cold steel, burning hearts, and grim determination. In modern America, they are the men and women of Joint Task Force 13, those who have proven they have the mettle to confront soul blasting otherness on the battlefield. This unit, this organization, though, has been intertwined with our country since its birth. The name changes, but they are always there, ready to answer the call. Unknown, seeking no glory, asking no reward.

They hold the line … BETWEEN HEAVEN AND HELL.

Genre: Military Scifi / Military Fantasy / Alt History

We want fun and engaging stories of military members/units confronting the supernatural on the battlefield. We want to fall in love with the characters and ride along with them on their adventure. Stories centered around forces other than the branches of the United States armed forces are welcome, but there must be a JTF-13 tie-in at some point, even if it is at the end of the story.

This listing is permanently closed for submissions. This may mean one of several things:
  • It was always planned to be a limited-time project, such as a one-time anthology, and the limited-time submission window has ended.
  • The publisher has stated that they are permanently closed, or on hiatus with wording that makes it sound permanent.
  • The publication website is down in a way that appears to be permanent, and we haven't been able to find a new website for them.
  • The publication website is not down, but it appears to have been inactive for more than a year.
