NewCon Press are seeking the very best science fiction stories written by British authors and published for the first time during the calendar year of 2017. For the purposes of this project, 'British' means those born in Britain or currently resident in Britain.
All submissions are welcome as long as stories are recognisably science fiction. We are not looking for fantasy or horror or any other shade of genre in this instance.
Best of British Science Fiction 2017 will once again be edited by Donna Bond (née Scott), who will be known to many of you as the current chair of the BSFA. As well as being a distinguished poet, writer, and stand-up comedian, Donna is a free-lance editor who has worked behind the scenes for a number of major publishers over the course of several years.
This is a paying market, offering 1p a word for reprint rights on accepted stories, up to a maximum of £60.00, along with contributor copies of the book.
Submissions are now open and will close at midnight on Monday 15th January.
