An Important Announcement
We are excited to announce the introduction of an entirely new category: Visual Art!
All Visual Art features will be in BETA testing phase for the next few months.


Do not submit here! This project is on hiatus.


So many fiction editors, in their guidelines, present tiresome litanies of what they do not want to see. Here, however, I have no real rules. The genres that I am generally interested in can be broadly called science fiction. I am happy to look at hard sf, soft sf, dark sf, and any crossing or blurring of genre lines that anyone can come up with—though I am not looking for any high fantasy, and while I like horror, this is not the venue for it unless it has some sort of sf element.

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.
