The Submission Grinder, milling your submissions into something useful

Andromeda Spaceways Magazine

Note: Names should be removed from the manuscript to allow anonymous judging.

Why does the world need another SF magazine? Because not enough humorous SF & Fantasy gets into print. Because SF can be printed AND entertaining at the same time. Because it's not the size of the sword, it's where you stick it. Because too many 'light-hearted, un-serious' stories are rejected. Because first-time authors have a hell of a time getting into print. Accepts submissions up to 10,000 words in length from ALL countries and up to 20,000 words from authors resident in Australia and New Zealand.
