Editor Comments

What kind of fiction are we looking for? Well that's an easy question to answer. We're looking for stories where the speculative element is integral to the story, whether it be horror, slipstream, fantasy, science fiction, steampunk, or alternate history or any other sub-genre.

We like well-developed characters and powerful themes, along with colorful, creative settings. Most of all, we are looking for stories that demonstrate the writer's serious commitment to craft and imagination.
