Fiction Vortex is our new site for publishing short fiction, particularly fiction of a speculative persuasion. This is the place for wizards and rocket ships, robots and hexes, hyper-reality and surreality.
We want science fiction and fantasy, and all the things that fall in the cracks around the major speculative genres. That means horror, if it’s done right; maybe even alternate history. We’re not averse to a good love story wrapped in a speculative wrapper, but in general we don’t accept romance. We usually publish works under 5,000 words, but we’ll publish a story as large as 7,500 words if it really grabs us.
So send us your best stories. And if you don’t write, tell your friends who do. We want to hear from you.
