YA stories – science fiction, fantasy and horror – wanted for Tesseracts 15

Tesseracts Fifteen: A Case of Quite Curious Tales, is open for submissions thru November 30, 2010.

"We've decided to do something different with Tesseracts Fifteen," says Brian Hades, owner of the EDGE Science Fiction and Fantasy Publishing imprint. "This volume will focus on Young Adult Speculative Fiction - which can include science fiction, fantasy, and horror. However submissions must appeal to the YA audience and be PG-14 in content. As usual, Tesseracts Fifteen is open to both short fiction and poetry submissions."

Payment is $20 for poetry, $50 for stories under 1,500 words, rising to a maximum of $100 for stories up to 3,500 words and $150 for stories between 3,500 and 7,500 words.

Submissions:The Tesseracts anthology series is open to submissions in either English or French: from Canadians, landed immigrants, long time residents, and expatriates. French stories must have been translated into English for publication. The maximum length for stories is 5,500 words, with shorter works preferred.  Full submission guidelines here.

About the series
The first Tesseracts anthology was edited by Judith Merril. Since its publication in 1985, 240 authors/editors/translators and guests have written 483 pieces of Canadian speculative fiction, fantasy and horror for this series. Some of Canada's best known speculative fiction writers have been published within the pages of these volumes - including Margaret Atwood, William Gibson , Robert J. Sawyer, and Elisabeth Vonarburg (to name a few). Tesseracts Fifteen is the sixteenth volume in the series. The entire series includes Tesseracts One through Fifteen, and Tesseracts Q, which features translations of works by some of Canada's top francophone writers of science fiction and fantasy.
