Chimaera Serials is a speculative fiction webzine. We like the strange and unusual, stories that inspire, that force goosebumps or that twist our sense of reality. We are seeking to give writers who enjoy these styles another way to share their craft; and to become a source of great speculative fiction for our readers. Our focus is on fantasy, adventure, horror, dark fantasy and anything else that is speculative in nature. We seek out and publish stories that are written for adult readers, with a level of subtlety and complexity approprate for adult fans of these styles of writing. We are a bi-monthly publication, and each Issue will be filled with exciting new segments of our serial stories, along with book reviews, interviews with our writers, short stories, poetry, artwork and anything else we feel will contribute to the 'zine. Each segment will be offered on our site.

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.
