The Submission Grinder, milling your submissions into something useful





Description
DERELICT is to feature stories involving abandoned ships, whether it be ships at sea or starships in space. We are attempting to fill half of the anthology with science fiction stories and half with fantasy stories. We are somewhat flexible as to the definition of “ship” for this anthology, but it must still be somehow abandoned in some way. Stories featuring more interesting takes on the use of the abandoned ship will receive more attention than those that are more mundane or are tropes. Make certain the story is centered on the ship! If the abandoned ship element is removed, the story should fall apart. So be creative and use the abandoned ship in an unusual and unexpected way. We are looking for a range of tones, from humorous all the way up to dark, including horror.
