The time has come! We’re opening up submissions for a trio of speculative fiction anthologies that we hope you’ll love.
Edited by A J Dalton, Robyn Fulton, Kate Coe and Amanda Rutter. We’re proud to bring you the following:
An anthology of science fiction and speculative stories exploring how science and technology could change what it means to be human.
We’re looking for stories that explore ideas including, but not limited to: bio implants, cybernetics, genetic modification, and age reversal and the human experience of undergoing such procedures.
You are encouraged to populate and create your own world with original characters and to set the tale as close or as far away from present time as you wish. We’re after fresh and engaging work that makes us laugh, cry, and think. Show us what the future holds should technology continue to advance at unprecedented speed.
Land belonging to no-one. An anthology of speculative fiction that explores the colonisation of our Solar System and far beyond, where pioneers carve out a new existence under other stars.
New worlds and new challenges bring the potential for rich stories filled with alien races and strange technology, but against this backdrop we want to experience the many facets of human emotion during the struggle to make a new home. Show us human life on the final frontier.
We’re looking for stories that leave us thinking about the characters long after The End.
Holding On By Our Fingertips
An anthology of science fiction stories exploring the many different reactions and experiences of people during the 24 hours leading up to the end of the world.
We’re looking for stories that show us a range of emotions and reactions to the news of the apocalypse. How and why is entirely up to you, but some examples include nuclear warfare, alien invasion, ecological disaster, an impact event, dysgenics and so on.
Our base instinct is to survive, but when the end is nigh, do we simply lie down and die? Or do we celebrate our life and achievements?
Exploring the uncertainty of our future can sometimes force us only to look at misery, but we encourage you to have fun. Whatever the reaction, make us feel the many emotions of your characters.
Love, loss, forgiveness, revenge, or just that final goodbye…
Anything take your fancy? We hope so!
We’re asking that stories are between 6-10k in length and polished to perfection.
Submissions period is open until the end of January 2017.
Please send all stories to us via our submittable link: Kristell Ink SUBMIT NOW!
We’ll be starting up a Facebook group for those interested to join and ask questions etc, for now though the page is a little sparse but will, obviously, become more interesting over time! Anthology Facebook Group
