A good friend of mine, Peter, is starting a beautiful new onling magazine. Here’s the description, if you’re interested in submitting.
SHADOWS OF SATURN: DARK SCIENCE FICTION – http://shadowsofsaturn.com/
Brand new online magazine, with an open call for submissions.
“Shadows of Saturn is a bimonthly online magazine dedicated to dark science fiction, fantasy, and slipstream stories with a twist of horror. The ideal Shadows of Saturn story, above all, sets a dark mood. It uses the tools of its genre to weave a tale that ultimately evokes terror or pity, or that leaves the reader feeling uneasy. (This does not necessarily preclude stories that use humor, nor stories that end with hope instead of despair.) Strong plotting and well-developed characters are very important to us. Prose should be literate, but not convoluted. The horror we are interested in is psychological�stories with hacking, slashing, blood, guts, and/or gore will be a very hard sell.
We pay on acceptance US$0.05 a word stories up to 5000 words, and a flat rate of US$250 for stories above that. We prefer stories 2000-4500 words long, but will consider any length from flash to novella. For poetry, we pay a flat rate of US$25 per poem, unless the poem is longer than 500 words, in which case we pay at our short fiction rates.”
