The Fuckening - Poetry (Go to Fiction)
Sci-Fi Lampoon

We’ve all seen the memes about “The Fuckening”—when your day is going too well and you don’t trust it and some shit finally goes down. Ah, there it is: The Fuckening.

We were inspired by this sentiment and thus have heeded the call to create an anthology that embodies The Fuckening.

SFL is looking for funny, speculative fiction short stories and poetry that embody The Fuckening. All stories must be science fiction, fantasy, horror, or a combination of the three. These stories can be witty, goofy, dark, sarcastic…whatever, we don’t care, as long as they are speculative fiction and contain a reference to The Fuckening and maintain a general theme of fuckery (we mean this in the non-pornographic sense).

We know that some of you are going to be tempted to shoehorn a reference to The Fuckening into an existing piece; we won’t tell you not to do that. However: please don’t send us something that is obviously not within the theme where you changed two sentences just to get it in on a technicality.

This listing is permanently closed for submissions. This may mean one of several things:
  • It was always planned to be a limited-time project, such as a one-time anthology, and the limited-time submission window has ended.
  • The publisher has stated that they are permanently closed, or on hiatus with wording that makes it sound permanent.
  • The publication website is down in a way that appears to be permanent, and we haven't been able to find a new website for them.
  • The publication website is not down, but it appears to have been inactive for more than a year.
