Issue #140 (Spring) Fiction

Temp Closed

Opens on Saturday, March 20, 2021 12:00 AM UTC (in 13 days)

We seek: Broken boundaries, blown minds and new horizons. Science fiction, fantasy, horror, steampunk, magical realism—we look for work with a speculative element. Creative hybrids welcome. If you can combine horror, science fiction and fantasy into one compelling plot, you’ve caught our attention. If your story has the power to shake some perspectives, we are interested.

You send: We prefer stories up to 5,000 words but will consider a maximum word count of 10k submitted in standard Shunn electronic manuscript format. All fiction submissions are to be sent electronically. Please include complete contact details on the document. Simultaneous submissions welcome, just please notify us if your work was accepted elsewhere and withdraw your submission on Duotrope.

We pay: Payment of a penny-per-word is made upon acceptance for fiction, plus $10 to purchase a contributor copy at your convenience. We buy first print, electronic and audio rights. After a work is published, rights immediately revert to the author.

We use Duotrope’s Duosuma Submissions Manager. You may log into your Duotrope account at any time to view your status. Accepted submissions will be posted on our social media and notified. If your work is not selected, you will also be notified. If you haven’t heard from us within 60 days, your work is no longer under consideration and we thank you for sharing it with us.
