Space and Time


Issue #139 Fiction


The benefits to publishing in Space and Time: Space and Time magazine is produced as an audio issue as well as digital and print editions. Every fiction author and poet that appears in this issue receives a complimentary PDF subscription, a print copy and the ability to purchase extra copies at wholesale plus shipping as a contributor. We will also upload the audio production of your piece to YouTube for you to use for your own promotional purposes and include you in our social media as much as we are able. Your success is our success.

In addition, we will consider your works for nomination to the Pushcart Prize, Best New Poets, PEN/O’Henry Prize, Best American Short Stories, Best American Essays, Best American Non-required Reading, The Best Small Fictions, Poetry Daily, Science Fiction and Fantasy Poetry Association’s Eglin and Rhysling Awards, Horror Writer’s Association’s Bram Stoker Award® and Verse Daily. We try to nominate from each publication every year.

We seek: science fiction, fantasy, horror, steampunk, magical realism—we look for work with a speculative element and creative hybrids. Gratuitous sex and gore do not impress us, so only include if they are integral to the plot. No children’s stories.

You send: Stories with a maximum word count of 10k (we prefer stories up to 5,000 words) submitted in standard Shunn electronic manuscript format. All fiction submissions are to be sent electronically. Please include complete contact details on the document.

We pay: Payment of a penny-per-word is made upon acceptance. We buy first print and electronic rights. After a work is published, rights immediately revert to the author. Accepted submissions will be posted on our social media and notified. If your work is not selected, you will also be notified.
