WRITERS:

THE SUBGENRES OF INTEREST FOR EXCERPTS, SHORT STORIES AND INTERVIEWS ARE AS FOLLOWS BELOW. YOU ARE ENCOURAGED TO SUBMIT IF YOUR WORKS FALL INTO ANY OF THE FOLLOWING CATEGORIES:

FANTASY: Beyond the common tropes of sprites, and knights universes of fantasy exist that have yet to be completely explored. Here is where the fantastical takes shape. Successful Fantasy submissions must focus on more alternate fantastical elements, specifically those created by diverse authors and which focus on characters and lands which show cultural divergence from the common fantasy themes.

HORROR: Digging into the fertile grounds of diverse cultural memes and backgrounds the successful submissions will explore the concept of “horror” in new and alternative universes and/or with creatures, beings, gods and monsters reflective of this world’s diverse populations.

SCIENCE FICTION: Without actual science “science fiction” is really magic or fantasy. Successful submissions in this area will focus on stories based in either hard or soft science, the issues and themes that are commonly associated with “science” fiction, space opera, etc. and reflective of this world’s diverse populations and cultures.

ALTERNATE REALITIES: One of the most intriguing areas of speculative fiction is the alternate reality construct. Successful submissions will provide readers with either people or places already known and familiar while twisting or modifying them to create a unique literary experience.

SUBCULTURES & CIVILIZATIONS: Ethnicities, species, languages, physiology, religion, geographic locations, prejudices, preferences and more all play a role in the development of cultures and subcultures. Successful submissions will create compelling cultural constructs and develop realistic cultures that we can identify with.

ARTISTS We are soliciting work from artists in all of the above-referenced areas and will consider webcomic and sequentials which fall into the above-referenced categories. All work will be credited and short bios will be published for all artists.
