Continuing our hard SF theme of the last two week: Compelling Science Fiction is paying pro-rates and looking for original and reprint SF stories!
Ultimately we are looking for science fiction that is entertaining, scientifically plausible, self-consistent, and technically detailed when appropriate. We have a preference for positive stories, to act as a counterweight to the currently popular post-apocalyptic genre. We certainly won't dismiss a well-written dystopian future, but we have a bias toward stories that depict technological advancement rather than decay.
They pay $0.06 USD/story, or 1c/word for reprints, and are open between Oct 1 and Dec 1 each year.
