Tweet the Meat Author: Jeff Coley

Jeff (screenwritr on Twitter) Coley combats the Texas heat with craft beer and Twitter length fiction. He's working to build an Internet comedy network, have some scripts produced, a webcomic distributed on mobile devices and some novels published. If he's still alive after those goals are accomplished, he might get married or attempt to design some video games. You can visit his new blog at Warning---it is scantily contented, which might bore interested readers. Give me a couple of weeks.

Tweet the Meat News: Cold Ethyl and a change to the Guidelines

This weekend 8/22's theme is Open/No Theme!

If the Guinness Book of World Records has an entry for 'Most Necrophilia-Themed Stories Read in a Single Sitting,' I'm fairly certain we would have a shot at winning.

Almost 50% of you took to the True Love theme as an invitation to relate to us your sex/love/relationships with a corpse stories. A good shower was needed after the first round of readings.

As of this moment we are not yet done with the submissions, so if you haven't heard from us yet, that's okay. We'll get to you soon.

We are requesting an additional right for all future stories, and it has been added to the guidelines. We are asking for non-exclusive print anthology rights. The reasons for this will become apparent in the next couple of weeks. However, if any future Tweet the Meaters are uncomfortable with this, they may choose to opt-out at the time of acceptance without fear of us rescinding our offer to publish that or any future tweet. If you have any questions about this, please email us at tweetthemeat(at)gmail(dot)com.

Total submissions this week: 90

Subs where the "Love" was no longer with us: 42
Thread and needle used to sew up parts: 5
Same-sex love stories: 4
Interspecies love stories: 3
Where that species was a turtle: 1

Body parts used as strings for guitars/pianos/other instruments: 9

Bodies placed inside of instruments: 5

Tweet the Meat Author: Bryce Beattie

"My name is Bryce Beattie, and I'm addicted to pulp. When I was a kid, some careless adult left a tape with several episodes of "The Shadow" lying around. After I listened to that, I was hooked. Pretty soon, audio just wasn't enough and I moved on to to the paperback stuff. At first it was just hardboiled detective fiction, but then I started reading old Conan stories and yarns about John Carter of Mars. Now I'm pretty hopeless. In fact, I'm so deep into pulp fiction that I write my own. You can check out the products of my pulp addiction at "
