• Submissions can be as long or short as you need, there’s no word count limit.
  • If your story is published elsewhere or on your own website, that’s ok. As long as you’re the writer.
  • If you have a website, feel free to include the address in the content area. Links especially welcomed if you have more stories on that website.
  • Original fiction please. Please don’t post someone else’s work.
  • Submit within the categories, sci-fi, strange stories, or humor. We’re not really a poetry or drama site (not that there’s anything wrong with that).
  • No musicals.
  • No hate speech type stuff. Critical satire is ok, we reserve the right to draw the line.
  • Please don’t submit explicit images with your story, they won’t be posted.
  • You retain all rights to your writing. We do not claim any rights to your work, you may publish it elsewhere with no beef from us.
  • You may submit content without leaving your email address. However if a third party (publisher/producer) becomes interested in your work, we have no way of contacting you without an email. Email addresses are not posted with stories, unless you request.
  • A pen name is ok, but false contact information (like a fake email) could lead to missed opportunities.

Comics & Memes:

  • No explicit images.
  • Can’t be inappropriate regarding race, gender preference, or political affiliation. By inappropriate, we mean hateful stuff, pictures of people you don’t like with their heads cut off…that sort of stuff.

Terms of Service:


  • When selecting the submit button I confirm I agree to the terms and I am 13 years of age or older.


  • The submitter confirms that they are posting original work. The writer retains full publication rights to their stories.


  • The public is protected from submitting content from another website, blog, or social media feed. However, if you did not create your submission, we ask that you include the source in the content area. We’ll link to that source as a common courtesy.


  • We’re not in the censoring business, nor are we qualified to provide professional critiques; however, experience tells us not to promise to publish everything submitted.

Webmaster and editor of I obtained a bachelor's degree in micro-biology around the turn of the century but was quickly tracked down and forced to return it to its rightful owner and pay a $25 fine. *** A fan of science fiction, I started this website in 1999 as a portal for science fiction stories that have never been published. *** Completely devoid of talent, I decided to call on the public to supply content. Shortly afterwards Stephen and I started writing weekly columns and have continued to this day.
