Taking Submissions: Stories from the Near-Future

January 31, 2016

Deadline: January 31st, 2016
Payment: Authors will share equally fifty percent of royalties received

Seeking science fiction set in a future five to fifteen years from now.

The same world in which we live, but with (for example) self-driving cars, big rigs, and garbage trucks, robots working in the car washes and in the farm fields, 3D printing, milk bottles delivered by drone, connectivity everywhere, fledgling AI, and the Internet of Everything.

Please note: We are not seeking apocalyptic or post-apocalypse stories and in general, prefer more upbeat than downer tales.

2500 – 6000 words. When submitting, please include “Near-Future” in the subject line. Accepting submissions from November 1st through January 31st, 2016. Planned release date April 15th, 2016. Will accept previously published stories provided author has rights and most recent publication is prior to April 15, 2015.

The anthology will contain between twelve and twenty stories, depending on the overall length. Authors will share equally fifty percent of royalties received.

We accept MS Word .doc and .docx files. Submissions must be in standard manuscript format. Links to formatting guides are available here.
