In Darkness, Delight: Fear the Future

Posted by Randi on Wednesday, January 29, 2020

What they want:
We seek truly terrifying stories that deal with futuristic themes, set in the near future or far. Tales can be Earth-based or extraterrestrial, perhaps featuring technological or social upheavals that have frightful implications for individuals or society at large; as examples, the ongoing erosion of privacy and enduring nature of online activity, artificial human enhancement via DNA manipulation or implants, impact of emerging technologies on developing children, and so on. (Think bigger than stories about an interesting app, even though that might be where thoughts go first.)
Deadline: November 15, 2020
Length: 2,500-4,500 words
Payment: $.03 per word
