Okay, this is pretty big news! I’ve got a LOT of really great stories for Zine’s first issue. So now, I’m (with some bittersweet regret) having to announce that submissions are (more or less) closing.
There are a few exceptions:
- I’m looking for one more Leigh Brackett or Gardner F. Fox style Sword & Planet/Planet Romance story that is around 7500 or less.
- One more essay (2500 words or less) on a work, series or author from the pulp era, their impact on books, film and/or gaming. Or some other relevant theme: Bradbury’s Mars vs. Brackett’s Mars, Lin Carter/August Derleth Deathmatch, why Forbidden Planet was the best movie ever or something like that. Just run the subject matter by me before you write/submit so we’re on the same page.
- If you’ve asked about submitting and I’ve told you “yeah, send it to me!”, send it to me. Especially if it fulfills number 1.
- If I have personally solicited you for a submission and you’ve told me that you have something you’re going to send, I STILL WANT IT (otherwise, why would I have asked you?), especially if it fulfills any combination of 1-3.
And yeah, I’m looking for cover art!
