Call for submissions for The Corona Book of Science Fiction

Corona Books UK (www.coronabooks.com) invites submissions of science fiction short stories for its forthcoming The Corona Book of Science Fiction

Other than not wanting fan fiction submissions, we’re not imposing any restrictions in terms of SF sub-genres. We want The Corona Book of Science Fiction to embody variety and be a ‘selection box’ of the best in new science fiction writing. We’re simply looking for the best and most original stories, regardless of SF sub-genre and from talented writers no matter how unsung.

Our submission guidelines can be found here http://www.coronabooks.com/sf-book-call/4594156175

The deadline is 12th March 2018. We will acknowledge all submissions on receipt, and will write to all authors, successful and unsuccessful, after the deadline and after our panel has decided which stories to select.

We look forward to hearing from you.

The Birth of flash & cinder

flash & cinder is a new literary magazine dedicated to flash fiction and poetry encircling a single idea. Our first issue, Spirit, is due to be formally released in July 2018 to start of our summer/winter alternation. We love writing that pushes boundaries and dares to experiment.

We’ve already received bounties of wonderful flash fiction and poetry, but we’re always interested in reading more. We love literary magazines such as Smokelong Quarterly MagazineNew Flash Fiction Review and Magma Poetry, and want to build something that will eventually stand proudly among them.

Bunbury Issue 18…in your hands?

Well hello to you all from Bunbury Magazine, and a (possibly slightly late) Happy New Year 2019 because by golly that January was a long one! We hope you are all well and sticking to your resolution like the good ones that you are.

 

We’re back to let you know that WE’RE BACK! Bunbury has landed with a brand new issue. Number 18. Bunbury is now officially able to vote and drink. It’s applying to university and revising for A Levels. It’s a busy time at Bunbury HQ.

 

To the important part. The issue is available for you now and, for the very first time, you can literally get your hands on a copy! That’s right, we’re in print! You would not believe how excited we are about this. Bunbury 18 now comes in both physical and digital formats: the physical features all of the poetry, short stories and flash fiction. The digital comes with bonus content, including the Art & Photography section, Serials and Our Edinburgh Fringe 2017 feature! It’s a corker.

The physical copy is £5 and comes with an activation code to download the bonus content for free OR you can get the full digital version downloaded to your gadgets for £5. Choose your destiny below.

We went with the theme of ‘The Hunt’ because Editor Keri was the loudest in the meeting room that day and started pretending to hunt everyone around the office. We don’t know why… We were afraid to ask.
Still, she’s stopped now and that’s the main thing.
We also thought it would be a darn good prompt. We hope it was.

This issue is another very special one, from the words, to the people, to the art, it’s just splendid from cover to cover.

As always, we’re bringing you excellent short stories, poetry, flash fiction and more alongside the usual stunning art work and in this one, we present for your delectation and delight, our adventures at the Edinburgh Fringe festival through our annual interviews. Also, allow me to take this opportunity to say that if you’ve never been to the Fringe, you really should. It’s a month of mayhem and wonder. Plus, haggis! What more could you ask for?
