We are currently seeking high-quality novel-length science fiction and fantasy submissions of all types. We are not interested in young adult, horror, erotica, religious fiction, short stories, dark/gruesome fantasy, or poetry.
Manuscripts should be written in good taste and be aimed at an older (aged 20 and up), well-read, mature audience. We prefer novels of between 75,000 and 100,000 words, although we occasionally accept longer works. We work with new and established authors. We particularly like stories with: depth and insight; great writing; original ideas; interesting characters who have believable behaviors, motives, and relationships; believable dialogue; strong plots; solid science or magic systems; unique settings; well designed, innovative alien life forms and environments, and richly detailed and original cultures. Please be sure that you send us the best version of your work. Before you submit your work (see requirements below), your novel should be complete (not a work-in-progress) and have already undergone extensive editing and revisions. Authors who are unsure if their novel meets our requirements should send only a query letter indicating their doubt, a synopsis, and letter to us. We do not accept submissions on floppy disk. They often end up arriving battered and broken like this one. We do not accept electronic submissions. We will not open your email attachments or visit your website. We do not accept simultaneous submissions.
