Pantechnicon seeks submissions for first print anthology.
Pantechnicon will be putting out its first book later this year, featuring brand new short stories from all our genres.
Submission guidelines are as follows:
– Stories must be in the SF/F/H genres, and of a standard that matches or surpasses what we would usually publish in the Magazine. It is highly recommended that you have read an issue of Pantechnicon before submitting to the anthology.
– Stories must be between 5,000 and 15,000 words.
– All submissions must be sent electronically in the form of a Word or RTF document to Submissions@pantechnicon.net with “ANTHOLOGY SUBMISSION” in the subject line. This document must include your name and email address.
– Simultaneous and Multiple Submissions are not accepted.
– Submissions must be the original work of the author and not previously published.
– Closing date for submissions is March 31st 2008. International date lines will be taken into account if you are behind GMT, so don’t panic if you’ve left it until 11pm PST to send your mail.
– Pantechnicon assumes first UK publication rights to a selected story. Contributors retain all other rights to their work.
– Authors may choose to withdraw their story at any time prior to publication.
– If an author fails to respond to communication from the editor at any point during the editorial process, Pantechnicon reserve the right to select another entry from the shortlist in their stead.
– Contributors receive a free copy as initial payment, then a percentage of the profits from the sale of the anthology every six months thereafter.
– Payment will only be offered via PayPal to non-UK residents. If you are a UK resident, other options may be considered and can be discussed on an ad-hoc basis.
– Anthology to be published in July 2008.
