Issue 5 has been sent to all backers who’ve backed for physical copies (minus those still getting their surveys in).
Plan is still for the ebook version to go live on the 31st. If you missed the Kickstarter, you can still pre-order here:
If you want to get in on next year’s Cirsova, get writing and get editing. We WILL have a very brief open submissions period from June to July. Space will be very limited, so I recommend writing shorter pieces (5000-7500 words). I’ll post more specific guidelines closer to when we’re ready to open, but for now the following should suffice:
- action driven stories
- stuff with space ships
- stuff with swords
- stuff with rayguns
- stuff with dashing heroes
- stuff with daring dames
- thinky stories where nothing happens
- math problems or engineering troubleshooting disguised as fiction*
- stuff with elves
We pay semi-pro rates of 1 cent per word with a bonus of an additional 1 cent per word on the first 2500 words. Payment is on acceptance for exclusive rights for one calendar year from the date of the publication.
*:we do accept “Hard” Science Fiction, just make sure that it’s something like Karl Gallagher’s Torchship or Paul Ernst’s Raid on the Termites (.
