Fantasy Fiction into Film
A Collection

We are soliciting manuscripts and proposals for an edited collection
tentatively entitled Fantasy Fiction into Film. The intellectual
lynchpin of this volume is the transition from text to the screen. The
essays should focus on the transformation of novel/short story/etc. into
film, the deletions, additions, and revisions from written to cinematic
narrative. We encourage essays on Peter Jackson's Lord of the Rings
series, as well as The Chronicles of Narnia and Harry Potter. The list
of applicable movies, however, could also include Charlie and the
Chocolate Factory, The Polar Express, The Wizard of Oz, Mary Poppins,
The Witches, Ella Enchanted, Finding Neverland, Nanny McPhee etc.

We invite proposals, but we will be unable to make a final decision
until we have seen a complete draft. Submissions should be documented
in MLA style and should be formatted in Word. Please do not use an
auto-numbering system for the endnotes in the final copy. The essays
should not exceed twenty pages. Those submissions that are accepted
must be submitted on diskette and must be accompanied by a permission
letter the details of which will be stipulated at the time of
acceptance. Deadline for submission of completed drafts is May 15 2006.

We encourage E-mail submissions which can be sent to one or both of the
following addresses: or
