I am now officially opening the portals and inviting submissions for the next volume of NH Pulp Fiction. This one is dedicated to science fiction and its mutant cousin, speculative fiction, which is to say the stories don’t all have to deal with spaceships, alien viruses and freeze rays. You can mix a little Twilight Zone in with your Outer Limits.
The deadline for submissions is January 31. The maximum word length is 8,000 (though I’m willing to bend rules for great writing). As always, the Granite State needs to be a tangible presence in the stories, which could be quite interesting if the story is set in, say, the 23rd century.
I don’t have a lot of other rules or style requirements, but if you have some weird old word processing software just use simple text; and everyone should adhere to classic old-school formats for submissions, i.e. put your doggone name AND address AND e-mail on your manuscripts. I can’t tell you how much trouble it is having to navigate back and forth between manuscripts and e-mails searching for basic contact info. Digital information is cheap, so take advantage of it and put your all contact information everywhere, assuming you ever want to be contacted.
Oh, and send your submissions to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Onward and upward.
