New Lonely Planet Travel Humo(u)r Anthology

Don George, Global Travel Editor at Lonely Planet, is seeking submissions (deadline 30 November 2004) for a travel humor anthology with a working title of By the Seat of My Pants.

Stories should be previously unpublished, 1000-3000 words and fall into one of the four following categories:

• Food (bizarre meals gone wrong)
• Transport (chicken bus plunge mishaps)
• Accommodations (where o where did you sleep last night?)
• Encounters (romantic or otherwise)

Or, as Don says, "(mis-)adventures in meals, hotels, transportation, encounters, romances, etc.: all the mischievous riches of the road!"

There will be 26 or so slots, several already reserved by Big Names. (Editor's Aside: Does this mean will get to read a funny travel anecdote from the Dali Lama?)

Submit away - if you already know how to contact Don - or keep your eyes peeled for submission details and an anthology-related contest on
