The Worlds of Science Fiction, Fantasy and Horror Vol IV

Posted by Randi on Wednesday, May 23, 2018

What they want:
Original - (previously unpublished - NO REPRINTS) genre fiction that explores as well as entertains. Readers like to get involved with bright characters and strange worlds. They like to be frightened and unnerved and they like to see magic and fantasy worlds that are not a slightly different Tolkien or Martin. Read the FREE anthologies published in the previous 4 years and get a feel for what can get across the line. I have no set taste pattern, as the anthologies will show, and I try and not stamp my preferences over the work selected. The material simply has to be good and it has to be the best you can offer. I have indeed purchased innumerable stories I did not actually like, taste wise, but they were good in what they were presenting, so they were purchased.
