The Submission Grinder, milling your submissions into something useful

House of Zolo - Fiction (Go to Poetry)



Description
HOZ are looking for literature that explores possibilities for the future. We want challenging short stories that are character driven, that reimagine the world and our place in it. We are looking for radical authors, feminist authors, LGBTQ2S authors, authors who experiment. Themes that thrill us: transhumanism, artificial intelligence, genetic engineering, new systems, resistance, activism, queer perspectives, feminist perspectives, nature.

We are not interested in stories that concern the reinvention of empire, rehashing of old narratives, or excessive violence. We entertain all genre based stories so long as they concern the future and especially if related to our favourite themes. That said, we are looking for the best speculative fiction stories, so if you think you have something we might want, please consider sending it.
