Lord of the Sea. Ruler of Pisces. Exalted in Cancer.
Mythologically, Neptune is associated with the sea, navigation, springs, horses, and racing. Astrologically, Neptune associated with idealism, dreams, dissolution, artistry, fluidity, illusion, and glamor. Astronomically, it is the beautiful sea-blue eighth planet.
All these together tie into what we think of when we hear “Neptune.”
Stories working with the genre conventions of Fantasy, Science Fiction, Weird/Pulp, or anywhere between will be considered. [Jake adds: That’s pretty broad, but if you’re not sure, feel free to pitch an idea.]
• Word count is 1,000 – 10,000

• Stories may be connected to Neptune astronomically, mythologically, or astrologically, as you prefer
