New Fiction Markets


Two new SF fiction markets, which look like they’re going to be awesome.

First we have Federations from John Joseph Adams:

Genres: Science Fiction only. Original fiction only, no reprints.
Payment: 5 cents per word ($250 max), plus a pro-rata share of the anthology’s earnings and 1 contributor copy.
Word limit: 5000 words. (Stories may exceed 5000 words, but $250 is the maximum payment per story, and stories 5000 words or less are strongly preferred.)
Rights: First world English rights, non-exclusive world anthology rights, and non-exclusive audio anthology rights. See my boilerplate author-anthologist contract, which spells out the rights in detail.
Reading Period: November 1-January 1, 2009
Response Time: Most rejections will be sent out quickly, but stories that I like may be held until January 31 before a final decision is made.
Publication date: May 2009
Publisher: Prime Books
Submission Instructions: Email your story in rich-text format (RTF) to John Joseph Adams at Include the title of the story and your byline in the subject line of the email.

I’ll be writing something for this one once I can think of a story interesting. Looks like something right up my alley though.

Then there is Footprints from Jay Lake. I’ll try thinking up something for this, but no guarantees. Right now all I have are humorous ideas, which might work. Can’t copy and paste for some reason, so you’ll just have to click the link.

Ther you go!

  1. I’ll have to write something for him then. I’ve got an idea already 😀 and it should be fun. I want to do the Federations one first, though, since that’s sort of up my alley.
