Taking Submissions: Far Orbit: Apogee
March 31, 2015
Deadline: March 31st, 2015
Payment: $0.01/word and Contributor’s Copy
Our journey continues… World Weaver Press has agreed to publish a second volume of the Far Orbit science fiction adventure series. We are once again looking for modern space adventures crafted in the Grand Tradition. We are not looking for slavish imitations of past classics. Rather, we would like to receive stories that establish a new tradition in the much maligned Scifi adventure genera — smart, modern stories built around the classic traditions.
We are looking for adventure stories that are creative, readable, and memorable. We are also looking for midnight indulgences; exciting stories that transport you from the everyday grind and leave you wondrously satisfied. All adventure-based sci-fi genera are welcome but stay away from fantasy elements unless they are genetically engineered or cybernetic. Stories can begin on Earth but the major action should happen out there, beyond the edges of our blue marble. Dystopia (Mad Max) and fantasy-like adventures (John Carter of Mars) have to be very special to be included in this anthology. Please, no fan fiction.
Because adventure stories often take more space to develop, World Weaver Press is accepting stories up to 10,000 words in length.
Previously published stories are acceptable but we will not publish stories that have been previously anthologized.
