New SpecFic e-zine seeks submissions

Jessica Thomas at Provision Books announced that submissions are open for the Spring issue of the company’s

Science fiction
Common Oddities Speculative Fiction Sideshow
, an e-zine from the folks at Provision Books, launched this fall with contributions from Jill Domschot, Robert McClain, Stoney M. Setzer, and our own Kat Heckenbach.

The editors are now open to submissions for the spring issue. They’re looking for short stories up to 5,000 words long in any of the following subgenres:

  • Science fiction
  • Slipstream
  • Mild horror
  • Alternate history
  • Paranormal
  • Light fantasy
  • Humor and satire with a speculative angle

The editors write, “Fantasy will be considered if it contains humorous or satirical elements, or if it does not contain elves or quests. However, humorous fantasy can contain elves or quests, or both. In fact, it’s expected.” For more details about what the editors do or do not want, see the submission guidelines.

Thomas is also accepting review requests. If you have a novel, novella, or anthology you’d like her to review, send in the first 1,000 words and a short synopsis.
