Strange Horizons will be open to fiction submissions on December 18th, 2023, at 9 a.m. UTC! To keep our response times manageable and submission windows more frequent, there will be a 1,000-story cap on submissions.

Once we receive 1,000 stories, we’ll close our portal while we work through your stories. If our portal is open, we are still accepting stories, but once it is closed, please do not send us your work.

Please see our fiction submission guidelines for more details on how to submit once we open and what we publish. Since we are using a story cap, we encourage authors to submit promptly!

But don’t worry, if you happen to miss our December open submission period, we will re-open again in the future. We will make final decisions on the last stories submitted during our April 2023 open window before December 18th, 2023.

I want to sink my faces into the hot spring and see which one comes out breathing. I’m hoping it’s mine.
