Tales from the Space Force
Tales from The Space Force
Closes April 15, 2019.
Okay, how could we not. Now that America has an official Space Force, we need to incorporate it into literature.
What to do we want? Camp? Satire? Bug Eyed Monsters? All good. We’ll do serious stories, too. Mostly we want good stories. And if I am to confess, we want campy stories. We want the golden age of pulp to live again.
Political bends are allowed.
Poetry and essays are allowed.
Ask yourself, what would an American Space Force do? Will there be a space wall around the International Space Station? Will NASA and the Space Force get along? I have no idea, but I’m leaving it up to you to tell us. Here at B Cubed, we leave the writing to you.
We’re looking for 500 to 5000 words.
Submissions should be in Word or RTF attachments, using SFWA manuscript format. Include your name AND email on the document. We’re pretty organized, but sometimes emails and stories get separated, and that is NEVER GOOD.
Email your submission to email@example.com. The subject should be: “SUBMISSION Space Force”. Really. Just copy it – we’ve made it simple.
Pay is 2 cents a word and royalties for stories. For very short fiction, poems, and nursery rhymes, we offer an option of a flat $25 to the writer. Payment is made on publication.
Multiple and Simultaneous submissions okay, reprints as well, but they are held to a higher standard.
