STRANGE HORIZONS

http://www.strangehorizons.com
We’re looking for high-quality stories that explore both the possible and the impossible: stories about human and nonhuman experience, about reality and dreams, about the here-and-now and otherwhere-and-elsewhen.
We want stories that have some literary depth but aren’t boring; styles that are unusual yet readable; structures that balance inventiveness with traditional narrative. We like characters we can care about. We like settings and cultures that we don’t see all the time in speculative fiction.
We like fantasy (especially urban fantasy). Dark fantasy is fine, but we’re not looking for outright horror. We like magic realism, “slipstream,” and even a dash of the surreal now and then, as long as it’s readable.
We also like science fiction, as long as it involves three-dimensional characters and interesting stories, not just science puzzles. We will consider submissions up to 9000 words, but we strongly prefer stories under 5000 words. We pay 4 cents/word.
We buy first-printing world exclusive rights for two months.

  1. You wrote “QUANTUM GENRE ON THE PLANET OF THE APES”… You have the title wrong, should be… “QUANTUM GENRE ON THE PLANET OF THE ARTS”.

  2. Dragons, Knights, and Angels merged with The Sword Review last year. The new online mag is called Mindflights.

  3. FYI, one of your listings, ByLine magazine, is out of print. I sold the magazine 3 years ago, and the new owner has shut it down.

  4. Thanks for share the useful information.

  5. Thank you for your information.
