David Nickle and Madeline Ashby are co-editing Licence Expired: the Unauthorized James Bond for ChiZine Publications, seeking stories based on the character of James Bond as described in Ian Fleming's fourteen published works. The anthology will be published by ChiZine Publications in Canada only, as Fleming's work has entered the public domain only in Canada and a few other countries.
Because of those legal restrictions, stories must only reference elements from Fleming's stories, and not elements introduced exclusively in the films, new novels and stories, games or other media.
“We want to feature original, transformative stories set in the world of Secret Agent 007,” says Nickle. “We're hoping our contributors will combine the guilty-pleasure excitement of the vintage Fleming experience with a modern critique of it.”
“This is an opportunity to comment on the Bond universe from within it,” adds Ashby.
Licence Expired: the Unauthorized James Bond is open for submissions until June 1, 2015 and will be published in November, 2015.
Stories should be a maximum of 5,000 words. Payment is 6 cents a word (Canadian).
