The Kafka Protocol
& the Burden of Compliance

Do you have a story to tell about the struggles of navigating an endless sea of paperwork, the tedium and surrealism of bureaucratic procedures, the tyranny of faceless institutions, or some other aspect of the absurdity of Kafka-esque politics? We are excited to read your speculative fiction (SFF+) submissions and to bring together a collection of stories that will transport readers to a world that is both bizarre and thought-provoking.  
Deadline: July 17, 2024
Release: Soon after.

The Pelagic Zone:
Uncharted Waters

This planet (and surely others like it) are mostly covered in water, and while we know a bit about life there, what mysteries might still lie far down within its depths? From gripping narratives that explore the ocean, the discovery of lost civilizations, or the dangers of creating underwater colonies, we are seeking stories that examine those worlds, and transport readers to a place that is both familiar and fantastical. Send us your speculative fiction (SFF+) tales of the underwater!  
Submissions open until filled.

The Apparatus Almanac:
Gizmology & Technomancy

Are you an architect of the arcane, a fabricator of futuristic fables, or a sorcerer of the silicon? We are seeking speculative fiction stories that meld the mechanical with the mystical, where devices not only drive the narrative but are imbued with a spark of the extraordinary.
We want tales that push the boundaries of imagination, where gizmos and gadgets transcend their wires and circuits to become entities of enchantment and wonder. Send us your stories of large or small enchanted engines, digital divinations, and the magical machinations that lie in the overlap between the rigor of technology and the realm of spellcraft.  
Submissions open until filled.
