GigaNotoSaurus



Description
GigaNotoSaurus (the webzine) publishes one longish fantasy or science fiction story monthly. Longish meaning longer than a short story, and shorter than a novel.
FICTION: Send us that story you really, really believe in–the one, maybe, that quickly ran out of places to submit it to because it’s so long. We do want a variety of settings, styles, viewpoints, and backgrounds. This includes but is not limited to cultural backgrounds, sexual orientations, and genders.
