Summary: “We publish literary genre fiction. This includes, but is not limited to: science fiction, fantasy, westerns, pulps, thrillers, horror and romance. We have a sci-fi/fantasy lean. When in doubt, just submit it.
All submissions should be previously unpublished in English and between 2,500 and 8,000 words. We’re more likely to print shorter pieces. Translations are welcome.
Most of our submissions are bleak. Happy pieces are more apt to stand out. Read stories that we’ve previously published. A portion of our magazine is available for free online.
We prefer writing with narrative.
We do not publish poetry, erotica, inspirational fiction, polemics, non-fiction, gore, fanfic or young adult fiction.”
