THE NEXT GATHERING THEME- READER SURVEY

Over the past several years we’ve published over twenty issues of our GATHERING anthology and have covered such themes as DESPAIR, HEROES, HOPE, ROMANCE, SCI FI, WAR and WESTERN.

Currently the editors are plotting out the remaining books for our 2014 schedule (and beyond) and we’d like your feedback.

So what theme would you like to see us cover next?

Post your answers in the comments section. And maybe, if we like it, you’ll see it listed as one of our choices.

    VAMPIRES! Not the sparkly, stupid kind, though. There are so many different types and ways you could go with them and you do a lot of horror stories. Think about it.

    Noir. Sports. Historical Fiction. Conspiracies. Addiction. Walls (Hadrian’s Wall, The Berlin Wall, The Great Wall of China, the Wailing Wall, prison, school, insane asylum, being grounded…stories where a wall, a barrier is critical to the story).

    Fairy Tales

    I have an odd idea. Every story has a character, or references a character, of the same name but not the same person
    . The name would work for a male or female, Leslie Jones, Andie Smith, so that the character could be either. Just a thought.

    Has there ever been a full on Super Hero book? I know there was the hey kids one, but an honest to goodness beat em up, I-think-I’m-a-rock-star-crazy super hero themed book. That.. would be 90’s style awesome.
