Basement Stories 14

Do not submit here! This project is believed to be defunct.


There's a twinkling in the distant corners of the cosmos. Planets collide, monsters from the great deep emerge, and Cthulhu stirs from his slumber. A new magazine is born! Basement Stories is a zany new mag offering you all the best in awesome science fiction and fantasy short form content. Here at Basement Stories, we love the fantastical, the outrageous, and the outrageously great.
FICTION: We're primarily looking for science fiction or fantasy stories, but will take anything that's good, so if you have a more conventional story you think would fit our mag, send it our way.
POETRY: There's no length limit here: we at Basement Stories are huge fans of epic poetry, so if you've got it, send it.

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.
