About

I will be editing an anthology of Dieselpunk stories. Dieselpunk is a blasting, belching, roaring speculative fiction, driven by thunderous machines dominating the landscape. Close cousins with Steampunk, Dieselpunk goes a step further into internal combustion, jet power and rocketry. This is a seat-of-your-pants ride, no computers to save your life, no electronic calibration to guide your trajectory, no GPS, iPhone or XBox. Just you and your humming throaty machines tearing the sky and landscape. Think 1950s fighter jets, think giant Union Pacific locomotives, think trans-continental trucking. Of course there are gentler kinds too - let your imagination roam; love stories, fantasy, horror, sci-fi. Do what you will, but the key concept is some internal/external combustion machines, without electronics.

Before Submitting

We cannot guarantee that the information on this page is correct. It is not unusual for publications to evolve or close without notice. We do our best to keep up, but it isn't always possible. Duotrope listings do not imply endorsement or recommendation of the project being listed. Before submitting, you should use your own judgment to determine whether the project meets your standards.

  • Always read the full guidelines provided by the publisher.
  • Try to read at least one previous publication to get a better idea of what the editor would like to see.
  • Unless the publisher's guidelines state otherwise, always use industry standard manuscript formatting.
  • Be professional, patient, and persistent.
