ORION’S BELT home of “bold, experimental literary science fiction and fantasy. We want stories that make us think about our place in the universe and our relationships with each other. We want stories that blur the line between “genre” fiction and literary fiction. We want stories that reach toward the stars while never forgetting the people on the ground. And we want it all in under 1200 words. It’s a difficult challenge, but we have faith in you, fellow cosmonauts. Pays 8 cents USD per word. 


Deadline: July 1, 2022 (Summer 2022 issue).
The Cafe Irreal is a quarterly “webzine that presents a kind of fantastic fiction infrequently published in English.

Pays an honorarium of one cent U.S. per word ($2 minimum) to buy first-time internet rights (the story will then be archived).
