Red Stylo Announces an OPEN CALL for a “Jekyll & Hyde” Double-Sided Anthology

Red Style has been putting out numerous anthologies and they have announced their latest. The theme this year is a call-back to Red Stylo’s literary roots: A Soul Divided/Caged in Flesh, an anthology of original comic stories inspired by The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, by Robert Louis Stevenson.

This will be the 7th book in the Red Stylo Presents series of anthologies, with a diabolical twist. Just as Jekyll and Hyde do battle for a single body, A Soul Divided/Caged in Flesh will be a double-sided, dueling collection of stories, with one-half inspired by the tortured Dr. Jekyll and the other entirely devoted to the abominable Mr. Hyde. There will be no middle ground. The two halves will exist together, each fighting for supremacy, but caged tightly in one collection of original works inspired by Stevenson’s horror classic.

Red Stylo has lots of information that you can find at their site and are looking more for “inspired by” than adaptations of the classic work. There’s no limit to the actual genre giving creators an impressive amount of room to work with. You’re also not limited as to your pitch, you can do both! Also, first timers are welcome!

The open call ends February 15th.
