Additional info

God’s Cruel Joke, at this moment, can provide a penny per word with a minimum provision of 30 USD for all pieces, no matter how short. God’s Cruel Joke is looking for works that explore the stranger, possibly more dangerous waters of the human condition. GCJ does not shy away from depictions of sex and violence, no matter how graphic they may be. It is only asked that those depictions serve a larger purpose than simple exploitation or shock value.
