Just reminding everyone that the (previously extended) deadline for submission to the SHINE Anthology, “an anthology of optimistic near-future SF, edited by Jetse de Vries, published by Solaris Books” is fast approaching.The deadline was originally June 30, but this was moved to August 2.
Submission guidelines are here. Remember, Mr. de Vries has stated that he is very keen on getting submissions from beyond the United States. He’s been providing a lot of helpful tips with regard to what kind of stories he’s looking for, and I thought I’d index a few of them here, for those authors whose spirits are willing, but whose muses are weak (like myself *sob):
- Things to Keep in Mind When Writing A Story for Shine
- Crazy Story Ideas
- Optimistic Literature and SF Around the World
- Why I Can’t Write A Near Future Optimistic SF Story: the Excuses
- An Update on the Shine Submissions
Good luck everyone!
