The first issue had a theme. Does the second?

Good question dolores haze.

No, the second collection will not have a theme. We are now looking for science fiction short stories on any theme.

Thank you for asking. -- Mike

Are submissions open indefinitely or do you have an approximate date they might close on? Also, do you accept submissions from outside of the United States (ie- Canada)?

Hi Ryan. We accept submissions from anywhere, even Canada. We're located in Canada, actually. We do not have a fixed submission close date. We will close submissions when we have either of i. enough submissions to complete book 2 and start book 3, or ii. too many to meet our 3 week author response commitment.

Stupid question, but I'm new to the Steampunk genre and looking for a potential market for my recent short story, so I guess what I'm trying to say is... is Steampunk science fiction? Or would it be classed more as fantasy?

If it is fantasy I have a science fiction short I'm planning out, I'll see how that goes.

Most steampunk is classified as science fiction, unless you twist it by adding magic (like I did in one of my stories).

Darnit. The scifi story I previous wrote and have available for submission is only 3000 words. So much for that.
