About

Absolute Magnitude is a full-sized, quarterly science fiction magazine. We do not use fantasy, horror, satire, or funny science fiction; while we will not reject the following out of hand, they are almost impossible to sell to us: present tense, police procedural, time travel, clones, alternate history, or stories with religious overtones. We’re looking for character-driven action/adventure based technical Science Fiction stories.

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.
