Byzarium 4

Do not submit here! This project is permanently closed to submissions. We provide the following information as an archive.


Byzarium accepts original fiction in the fantasy, sci-fi and horror genres. For horror, you may send any sort, but we do ask that there actually be a plot to your story, not just a lovingly described scene of death and destruction. For fantasy and sci-fi, we ask that you not send stories which include sex that does not contribute to the plot, extreme violence, and absolutely no scenes of graphic rape or child abuse. We are open to any sort of fantasy -- slipstream, urban, historical, world-building -- but ask that sci-fi center around people more than technology. We like sci-fi and fantasy that feature strong female or gay characters.

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. Just remember…

  • 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.
  • For novel/collection publishers, it is standard to submit a cover letter, synopsis, and sample instead of the full manuscript. Do this unless otherwise instructed.
  • Include a SASE with all mailed submissions, queries, and requests for guidelines, unless the editor replies via or email or guidelines state otherwise.
  • Be professional, patient and persistent.
