Compelling Science Fiction (est. 2016), a new online magazine publishing “hard” science fiction, has announced a call for stories to appear in future issues.
The editors are looking for gripping sci-fi stories that sound more scientifically and technically possible.
The purpose of the online zine is to discover, publish, and promote the best sci-fi stories, and to support and nourish the creative talents of authors who write them.
Ideally, stories should:
- emphasize at least one fascinating concept;
- engage readers with a well-thought out plot;
- clearly reveal the science/technology in the story.
The editors prefer stories with a positive message to counterbalance the popular post-apocalyptic genre trend. Humor is always appreciated.
Word length: 1K-10K words per story.
Payment: 6 cents/word (considered pro-rates for this genre).
Reading period will close June 1, 2017. Read submission guidelines at the eZine’s website.
