This does look interesting. I'm such a sucker for speculative fiction! I do have a question. Can we submit more than one story?

Yes you can! There's always a possibility of us buying multiple stories and then printing them in upcoming issues.
I understand the draw - SF is pretty awesome.

You don't accept stories that have nudity... That's an odd restriction for prose. May I ask why you have it?

Good question, Catadmin.
We don't accept excessive nudity - it ties to the violence and swearing. We're trying to appeal to a broad range of the public and we're avoiding the extremely pornographic stories that can be found. Basically, we don't want erotica.
In Burrough's Barsoom series, most of the characters are completely naked and yet it's a story that even kids can read. So, that would be a case where it's completely fine.
Thanks for the question! We might need to revise that stipulation for better clarification. Thanks!

FYI: I've opened a thread under the Background section of AW, if you would care to answer some questions about your experience and other things.

I have some stories in which I'd like to submit. Also, reprints are allowed? Wait, meh, I'll glance over the guidelines again. Sometimes these eyes may miss a line or two xD
