The Submission Grinder, milling your submissions into something useful

Alternative War - Fiction (Go to Poetry)
B Cubed Press

B Cubed Press is pleased to announce an open call for Alternative War. A critical look at War and what it does to us. This book will be edited by Bob Brown and Debora Godfrey, the team that brought you the best selling Alternative Apocalypse.

Does this mean we will not accept military Sci-Fi? No, but it means that it will be tested against the criteria that the writing be good, and carry an understanding of the cost of war. In terms of what we are looking for, think openly about the concept of war and conflict from origin, to back stage, to the field of conflict. The setting is open anywhere in time and space. As anyone who has read Churchill will know, war is much more than the fighting.

This listing is permanently closed for submissions. This may mean one of several things:
  • It was always planned to be a limited-time project, such as a one-time anthology, and the limited-time submission window has ended.
  • The publisher has stated that they are permanently closed, or on hiatus with wording that makes it sound permanent.
  • The publication website is down in a way that appears to be permanent, and we haven't been able to find a new website for them.
  • The publication website is not down, but it appears to have been inactive for more than a year.
