Skidrow Penthouse 15


SKIDROW PENTHOUSE ANTI-MANIFESTO A home for wayward voices, insect souls, architects of gutters, a place to hide one’s rain. A 200-page government whose language originated with trilobites and the last, incomplete suggestions of human sensibility. A sanctuary for the perfections of brokenness. A book of unkempt beauty, a mirror where one can hibernate stripped of ego. A heaven without its own truth, and therefore at least one truth. An invitation to the fires forgotten by the many. A shelter for the delicate, nearly lost music holding the days and their darkness together. But most importantly, a shelter. A book of named and unnamed black hole dynasties, their sadnesses, their celebrations.

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.
