The Dream Quarry



The Dream Quarry is currently looking for short stories involving strange science, outlandish engineering, and weird technology. Fantastical or empiric; biological, mechanical, or both, or neither; thought-provoking, awe-inspiring, or horror-inducing; magitech, steampunk, clockpunk, dieselpunk, biopunk, or something else entirely. The science can be old, new, or otherworldly, proliferated or advanced in unexpected directions, and applied to pre-modern, modern, or even beyond-modern endeavors. However, keep in mind that while such elements should form an integral part of the story, technology need not be the central focus, and should not displace fundamentals like character, narrative, and place.
