Insignia Best Asian Speculative Fiction Anthology Series
The Insignia Series

About: This is our annual reprint anthology, started in 2020. ‘Insignia 2022’ will feature new Asian speculative short stories. Pieces should be set in an Asian country and must have Asian main characters. (Exceptions are for non-human characters, or non-Earth settings, but your story should still have recognizable Asian elements in these cases. If you’re not sure, please query).

Theme: Anything speculative: horror, light or dark fantasy, and science fiction. As usual, we aim to have a good mix of Asian settings and cultures, as well as speculative sub-genres, so the more original your ideas are, the better chance your work will have of being accepted.
