About

Triptych Tales publishes stories that take place in our here and now, or something very close to it. We like mainstream, fantasy and science fiction, but we don't want space operas or high fantasy. Think The Twilight Zone or Flowers for Algernon or Robert Sawyer's The Terminal Experiment or the Newford stories of Charles De Lint, rather than Isaac Asimov's Foundation series or The Lord of the Rings trilogy. Stories do not have to be speculative but they should contain elements common to speculative fiction. That said, we're open to ideas that haven't occurred to us, as long as you don't take us off-planet. If you have to write about dragons, make us believe we could see them when we walk out our door.

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.
  • Be professional, patient, and persistent.
