Great science fiction. How you choose to meet this requirement is up to you. Consider that science fiction is merely a backdrop from which outstanding stories are written. Horror, detective, thrillers, etc., are all acceptable as long as there's some element of science fiction present (no romance or erotica). No serials, fan fiction, or anything unoriginal, please. Your story should stand on its own.
Length: 1,000-5,000 words
Payment: $20 for the first 2,000 words then $0.01 for each word thereafter, up to a maximum of $50 per story.
