On Saturday, March 12, 20 writers of romance, science fiction and history visited the grounds of the Morris-Jumel Mansion, the oldest historic home in Manhattan, to tour the house and hear the stories of the inhabitants of the home in Washington Heights.

The Morris-Jumel Mansion, in collaboration with Riverdale Avenue Books, will be publishing an anthology of paranormal romance and fantasy fiction based on the Morris-Jumel Mansion in October.

The editors of the anthology are looking for stories featuring the Morris-Jumel Mansion, in the past, the present, future, or in an alternate universe.

The stories must prominently feature the Morris-Jumel Mansion, and may include its historical inhabitants (including Madame Eliza Jumel, Stephen Jumel, Aaron Burr, and other Revolutionary War and pre-Revolutionary War characters, slaves and servants), the Mansion’s visitors, fictional or otherwise, and/or hauntings, visitations, or supernatural beings (including angels, devils, werewolves, vampires, etc), with elements of time-travel, science fiction, erotica/romance, paranormal, steampunk, or gaslamp fantasy. Please email for more information on the anthology.
