Taking Submissions: Augmentation Anthology (Title TBC)

February 1, 2015


Deadline: February 1st, 2015
Payment: two complimentary copies

Edited by Alex Davis and Brian Marshall

Boo Books is looking for submission for a new anthology on the theme of augmentation, to be released in summer 2015 and launched at Edge-Lit 4. The theme is open to interpretation, and all genres are welcome as long as they feature an element of augmentation – stories do not have to be science-fiction.

  1. Stories must be 1000-5000 words in English. No poetry or non-fiction.

  2. Stories will be accepted from all corners of the globe.

  3. Stories must respond to the theme of ‘augmentation’ in some way. Stories that are not related to the theme in any way will be rejected out of hand.

  4. Stories may be in any genre, provided they meet the theme.

  5. Sexual content, violence and swearing is acceptable provided it fits the context of the story. Use of these for gratuity or shock value will lead to rejection.

  6. Stories must be submitted by Friday 1st Feb 2015. Any work submitted after this date will not be considered.

  7. Reprints will be considered, provided author states where the work has been previously published. No simultaneous or multiple submissions – send us your best work!

  8. Boo Books acquires First English Publication Rights on new stories. In all cases copyright remains with author. Author may reprint or reuse the story as they see fit.

  9. Authors accepted into the anthology will receive two complimentary copies. No fees or royalties will be paid.

  10. Submissions should be sent to [email protected] with the subject line ‘AUGMENTATION SUBMISSION’. Please attach stories to your email as a .doc file. While there are no guidelines as per layout, please ensure stories are neat and readable.

  11. Please address any queries to Brian or Alex at [email protected]
