The goal for this e-zine is to publish “scientific papers” by mad scientists. Or, at least, fiction that could be loosely considered such. We are willing to consider any fiction that is told from within a fictional world. This can be first person from the point of view of the scientist, someone who has witnessed these events, fictional newspaper articles, or even scientific papers about pseudoscience. We are willing to take almost any genre for this: humor, SF, fantasy, horror, paranormal romance, urban fantasy, pulp adventure. All we ask is that it be well written and fit within the needs of this e-zine. Gratuitous anything that doesn’t add to the story is discouraged.
