Staffs and Starships - new SF and fantasy market


This brand new magazine is calling for submissions to the debut issue that's planned for this summer.

quote:

Here’s what we want:

   1. Fiction of literary quality that leans towards the traditional
          * No space opera, no cyber punk, no urban fantasy
          * No horror, supernatural, psychological thriller
   2. Fiction with strong characters and sound plots
   3. Fiction that raises a question – whether explicit or implicit

This first issue will host ten stories, so it will be substantial. Subsequent issues will house between five and six stories (depending on word counts). Please keep stories under 3000 words.



The best news is that they are open to email submissions, as you can see in the

Submission Guidelines

General Submission Thoughts

Right now, they are paying between 10 US$ and 30 US$ per story. Let's hope they are so successful that the rate can rise. emoticon

Best of luck for your magazine! emoticon

With as much press as I seem to be getting, I should be as successful as everyone hopes. emoticon Thanks, Firlefanz for all the support. Perhaps I'll see your name in my inbox soon.

Staffs and Starships could use a few more stories for their September issue.

So, if you have a story of no more than 4,000 words lying around, you might want to give it a try.
