Holy C.O.W.! SF stories from the Center Of the World is an anthology of Speculative Fiction stories rooted in the ancient Fertile Crescent, Levant and the Middle East, but stretch into the near and distant future.  Holy C.O.W.! is seeking all styles and sub-genre, including humorous speculative fiction.  Addition consideration will also be given to artists who live or are from the region.

POLICIES & RESPONSE TIME: No reprints, multiple or simultaneous submissions please. You may query after 30 days. Please send only one submission per author unless directly invited to send more.

We’re looking for speculative stories rooted in the Fertile Crescent, Levant and the Middle East.   The region should be an integral part of the story, and not simply a transplant.  For ideal example think of how Mike Resnick’s story “Kirinyaga” relates to Africa culture and issues.  We welcome quality flash fiction and non-traditional narratives.  Authorized English translations of original stories, particularly from regional artists, are also welcomed and encouraged.
