Sirens Call Publications is now accepting submissions for:
Out of Phase: Tales of Sci-Fi Horror
Very simply, for this collection of short stories, we are looking for Science Fiction Horror. We don’t care if that means mutation, creation, invention, machinery gone awry, or space and or time travel. But it must be Science Fiction, and it must be Horror Fiction. What we specifically do not want are Other World/Fantasy stories – these will be rejected.
If you choose to take a factual approach to your Sci-Fi Horror, we ask that you exercise constraint and not bore us or the reader with unneeded details. By all means, include necessary details, but delivering a slew of facts in order will not translate to an intriguing read. Most likely, these stories will be rejected as well. Our review team is highly scientifically minded, so vet your facts, and make sure they are accurate. False data based too closely on truth that lacks an imaginary spin will also earn you a rejection.
Be creative, imaginative, and dead-on-the-money accurate on this one. It’s our first venture into the Sci-Fi realm, and we won’t be accepting anything that lacks genuine kick!
Submission Deadline: May 31, 2014
Word Count minimum: 4,000 words – nothing less will be reviewed; no reprints considered.
