The Universe Annex section of the Grantville Gazette publishes short-form science fiction and fantasy. The editorial emphasis for the Universe Annex will be adventure stories (with "adventure" very loosely defined). But we will consider any science fiction or fantasy story. The Universe Annex will emphasize discovering and developing new writers, as the Introducing section of Jim Baen's Universe did. However, any writer—at any level—is welcome to submit stories to us. But you need to follow the procedures we have in place.

Important: Part of the submission process involves posting the story on a private forum.

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.
  • Be professional, patient and persistent.
