Speculative fiction with a literary bent (please see our Read This page for ideas on what we tend to like.) Science Fiction that doesn’t blame technology for the fall of humanity Fantasy that takes advantage of the genre and eschews easy tropes Diverse, thoughtful cast of characters (i.e. not everyone is a white dude, except that one group of downtrodden women in a village who was attacked by Orcs.) Stories that take up 3500 words or less Edited, polished manuscripts Old stories told in a new way New stories told in an old way Sad endings that don’t rely on gimmicks or shock value Happy endings that hurt a little bit Beautiful prose and well developed plot
