The Centropic Oracle

Full submissions The Centropic Oracle is looking for science fiction and fantasy stories that make you feel and think. In our opinion good fiction – particularly SF and Fantasy – should challenge us to examine our own lives and beliefs. It should force us to reflect on how we fit into the world and what it takes to make the world a better place by our being in it. We aren’t looking for things that will give us answers to those questions, but that doesn’t mean your story shouldn’t have a resolution (good, bad, or indifferent!) to its conflict. What we do not accept: - erotica of any description; - gratuitous graphic violence; - profanity - we want to be family friendly. We hope our content inspires dinner table talks; - anything to do with zombies; - pieces that are nothing but proselytization of a religious or political perspective; - racist, homophobic, misogynistic, or misandrist works; - fan fiction – it must be an or

Beneath Ceaseless Skies

Full details What We Want Beneath Ceaseless Skies publishes “literary adventure fantasy”: stories with a secondary-world setting and some fantasy feel, but written with a literary approach. Secondary-World Setting: We want stories set in what Tolkien called a “secondary world”: some other world that is different from our own primary world in some way. It could be different in terms of zoology (non-human creatures), ecology (climate), or physical laws (the presence of magic). It could be set on Earth but an Earth different from our modern-day primary world in terms of time (the pre-modern historical past of our real-world Earth) or history (alternate history from our Earth’s history). It could have a “pre-tech” level of technology, or steampunk technology, or magic as technology, or anything else that’s not advanced or modern technology. However, the setting should contain some element that is in some way fantastical, and the qualities of the setting should have som

No work that has appeared anywhere in print or online—including personal blogs, critique groups, message boards, and anything similar. Before submitting, you may want to read some archived poems
