Taking Submissions: Tales from the Space Force

April 15, 2019

Deadline: April 15th, 2019
Payment: 2 cents a word and royalties or a flat rate of $25

B Cubed Press is pleased to announce three new open calls for anthologies to be released in 2019.  Submissions open immediately and close on April 15, 2019.
Submissions should be in Word or RTF attachments, using SFWA manuscript format. Include your name and email on the document, e-mails and stories get separated, and that is never good.
Include “SUBMISSION” and the title of the anthology to which you are submitting in the email subject line.
Pay is 2 cents a word and royalties for stories. For very short fiction, poems, and nursery rhymes, we offer an option of a flat $25 to the writer. Payment is on publication.
Multiple and simultaneous submissions are okay. Reprints are allowed, but they are held to a higher standard.
Send your submission to [email protected].
Read on for details on individual stories.

Okay, how could we not? Now that America has an official Space Force, we need to incorporate it into literature.
What to do we want? Camp? Satire? Bug-eyed monsters? All good. We’ll do serious stories, too. Mostly, we want good stories. And if I am to confess, we want campy stories. We want the golden age of pulp to live again.
Political bends are allowed. Poetry and essays are allowed.
Ask yourself: what would an American Space Force do? Will there be a space wall around the International Space Station? Will NASA and the Space Force get along? I have no idea, but I’m leaving it up to you to tell us. Here at B Cubed, we leave the writing to you.
We’re looking for 500 to 5,000 words.
