Setting: They seek steampunk stories featuring strong characters, exciting plotlines, and automatons and/or airships. They don’t want the latter to be mentioned in passing; it should be central to the plot. They aren’t shooting for any particular mood with this book. Dystopian, humorous, pulp, Lovecraftian, upbeat or dark— all have a place here. Please don’t feel constrained to write in a Victorian setting. It’s steampunk, push the boundaries. They’re looking for that certain flavor of writing that’s hard to explain, but obvious when it’s present. Like most markets, they aren’t interested in erotica or unnecessary gore.
Submit stories in standard manuscript format to firstname.lastname@example.org. No snail-mail. No multiple submissions. Word or .rtf only, no .pdf, .wp, etc. Feel free to send another story after rejection. Please type A&A/Your Name in the subject line.
Best of luck and see you in the aether.
