The competition is strong, but we are still far from a table of contents.
I have received stories based on almost every kind of Appalachian critter, but wampus cats are by far the most common type submitted. I would love to see more lake monsters, ghost stags, big foot, sheepsquatch, and Native American beasts of legend. Many of the stories also set in the woods - so if you're looking for a way to stand out, try setting your story someplace besides the forest.
If you're looking for more information on the anthology, or what types of critters are out there - check out the Strange Critters facebook page HERE!
Best of luck with your submission.
