Newcon Press are proud to announce a call for submissions for BEST OF BRITISH SCIENCE FICTION 2016.
We are seeking reprints only of short stories from 2016, which have been first published during the year of eligibility.
The original publication of the story may have first appeared in print, online or audio, but must be written in English. The author should be a writer (or writers) of British or Irish nationality, or who has (have) permanent residence in either territory.
The story must be submitted as text only, standard manuscript format preferred. Stories must be submitted as email attachments only to email@example.com
The original publication of the story must be a complete work of short fiction in the science fiction genre to be reproduced in its entirety in this anthology.
We have no hard and fast rules on story length, but would prefer stories to be under 15,000 words (and any story at that length will have to be outstanding).
The story must have been published by someone other than the author (i.e. self-published works are not eligible) and be the author's original work, not written within the canon of another author's creation.
The story must have been originally published between January 1 and December 31 of the year of eligibility.
Payment for reprinted stories is 1p per word.
The submissions period is now open and closes at midnight, UK time, on 31st January 2017.
