Editor Comments

Charm, Beauty, Strangeness is an anthology of speculative relationships, to be published late 2005, edited by Zara Baxter.

Both the speculative element and the relationship/love element are central to a Charm, Beauty, Strangeness story. Submissions without both elements, or where the story would be substantially the same with the elements removed, will not be considered. Submissions for which the relationship/love element is the speculative fiction element definitely qualify.

The definition of love and relationship are flexible. Polyamory, LGBT (Lesbian/Gay/Bisexual/Transgender) and platonic relationships are as welcome as boy-meets-girl, good-old-fashioned-romance-regency-style, AI-meets-compatible-programming-concept or budding-mycobeing-ingests-suitable-genetic-material.

Stories that stretch the definitions and boundaries of relationships and love are particularly welcome.

For the "speculative" element, any type of speculative fiction will be considered, whether it be fantasy, horror, slipstream, science fiction, alternate history or "weird shit".
