Synth Anthology Series

Note: send only one story per reading period.

Synth is a new anthology series of dark SF that will be published in both paperback and electronic editions.

Stories should be dark, literary, and ideally inspired by the likes of Black Mirror, J.G. Ballard, Caitlín R. Kiernan, Philip K. Dick, Pat Cadigan, Stanislaw Lem, Margaret Atwood, James Tiptree Jr., Alphaville, and a host of others. Above all we seek thought-provoking tales which reflect the not-too-distant future (or our present) in all its cyber/surreal glory. Send us tales of utopia and dystopia, of inner and outer space. Tales that are bleak, tales that are bold.
