This is our annual reprint anthology, started in 2020. Pieces should be set in an Asian country and must have Asian main characters. Anything speculative: horror, light or dark fantasy, and science fiction. As usual, we aim to have a good mix of Asian settings and cultures, as well as speculative sub-genres, so the more original your ideas are, the better chance your work will have of being accepted.

Important: Reprints only.
