It's only been a week and we've already received well over 50 submissions. We want to thank all the authors who have submitted works, as well as all the people who have offered words of encouragement and support.

We're on schedule for a July 2012 release of Issue One. If you would like to submit a story for consideration for inclusion in the first issue, please submit no later than early June.

Thanks again,

Just a quick update to the thread. Specutopia is no longer accepting art submissions for the time being. If, and when, we re-open to art submissions, an announcement will be made on the Specutopia website.

Update: We're now in the final selection phase for Issue One of Specutopia. We've received a large number of excellent submissions, and, overall, far more than we expected for the first month after launch. We'll be finalizing the lineup and sending out notices in the next few days. Once again, thank you to all the authors who have submitted stories, and for all the supportive comments and input. And, keep those submissions coming it - Issue Two is right around the corner.
