Call for submissions…The Best of British Fantasy

I’m currently seeking stories for The Best of British Fantasy series from the award-winning NewCon Press.

NewCon already publish fantastic science fiction and horror ‘Best of’ anthologies, and I’m glad to be adding this new horse to their stable.

The Best of British Fantasy will reprint stories first published – in any format (anthology, online, zine, website) – in 2018. All authors born in and/or long-term residents of the UK are welcome to submit.

Ideally, I’m looking for stories between 2,500 and 6,000 words, but I will be flexible. Multiple submissions are welcome. All the submission details can be found here.

Any questions? My email address is at the link above, or prod me on Twitter at @straycarnivore[Art by the versatile and talented JRR Tolkien!]

 

 

 

We’re looking for your finest short science fiction story

Shoreline of Infinity, the newest British science fiction magazine,  is currently open for submissions until 3oth November 2016. We’re looking for stories up to 5,000 words.

We’re a quarterly magazine, and is available in print and digital formats – and we pay for stories.

We’re  looking for a good science fiction story, something that gives reality a tweak on the nose. An idea that makes us stop and think. But don’t forget your characters: all the best stories are seen through the eyes of characters your readers believe in.

The best advice is to read a Shoreline of Infinity for yourself to see the kind of stories we like.

Full details and submissions instructions are available on our submissions page.

PS We’re a little bit short of science fiction stories with steampunkian tendencies, and we’re becoming more open to the fantasy end of science fiction, if you follow me.

PPS We re-open for submission in the New Year.
