When Worlds Collide

Posted by Randi on Friday, August 28, 2020

 What they want:

WHEN WORLDS COLLIDE is to feature science fiction and fantasy stories, including alternate history stories, where two different cultures “collide” in some way.  We expect mostly first contact types of collisions, but the story does NOT need to be a first contact story. The cultures can be human, alien, technological, fae, etc. They should clash in some significant, meaningful way. Stories featuring more interesting juxtapositions of cultures and the ways in which they meet and interact will receive more attention than those that use the more typical, expected collisions.  So be creative and come up with an unusual and unexpected meeting of different cultures.  We are looking for a range of tones, from humorous all the way up to dark.
