Gallery of Curiosities

Posted by Randi on Friday, March 18, 2016

What they want:
Gallery of Curiosities is a paying speculative fiction anthology podcast and magazine. What makes us different from other SF/F/H markets is that most of our stories have some sort of anachropunkish retro-vintage element, and the handful of others that don’t were the ones that grabbed us by the throat and demanded to be bought. Clear as mud? Good. About 2/3 of submissions are rejected for “Bad

As an audio venue, we want short stories that entertain. We want to be taken on an adventure in a time that never was, be it steampunk, gaslamp, weird tales, dreadpunk, vintage horror, mad science, fantastic cities (please!), monsters, impossible machines, clockworks, alt-history adventures, surprises, weird westerns, and things that shouldn’t work. We will read Bizarro but it must have an internal logic to it.
Length: Up to 7,500 words
Payment: 3 cents a word USD for original fiction and a penny a word for reprints, with a minimum of $10 USD for stories less than 1000 words.
