Why Don't I Get Invited To Anthologies Like This?

(NOTE: Based on time elapsed since the posting of this entry, the BS-o-meter calculates this is 13.266% likely to be something that Ferrett now regrets.)

Circlet Press would like you to write erotica about… the editorial staff of Circlet Press.  To wit:

Like A Circlet Editor is an anthology that plays off of how our readers imagine what working for Circlet must be like. The focus is not on the mundane work of editing manuscripts or running a business but on the fantasy on what it must be like to put together the hot and memorable Circlet books. The stories can be serious or satirical. We’re looking for stories 5,000-10,000 words in length that play on the fantasy of what it’s like to be part of Circlet Press. What sort of research does a Circlet editor have to do to ensure the hottest fantasies for a book? What might vampires or aliens or robots coming across a Circlet book make of how we’ve eroticized them? What really goes on at those editorial board meetings? Make it funny, make it sexy, make it fantastic, make it Circlet.

My favorite bit is this:

Originals only, no reprints.

…just in case you’d gotten Clarkesworld to publish your Circlet Press-editorial-staff smut.
