The Submission Grinder, milling your submissions into something useful

Future Syndicate Anthology Series
Nomadic Delirium Press




Description
What we’re looking for: We want stories about criminal activity in the future. We’re not looking for detective stories…we want stories that are about the criminals themselves, and their activities. This is a science fiction anthology, so science has to play some role in the story. Hard SF would be great, but we will look at adventure SF as well. As important as science is to the story, we really want to see well drawn characters who are believable and act in realistic ways. We all know that crime is a bad thing, but these people do it for a reason…what is that reason? Having said that, we don’t want to see fiction that portrays the criminals as completely evil with no redeeming qualities.
