Andromeda Spaceways 255

About

Why does the world need another SF magazine? Because not enough humorous SF & Fantasy gets into print. Because SF can be printed AND entertaining at the same time. Because it's not the size of the sword, it's where you stick it. Because too many 'light-hearted, un-serious' stories are rejected. Because first-time authors have a hell of a time getting into print. [Submissions of up to 20,000 words are permitted from subscribers and from authors resident in Australia and New Zealand.]

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.
