Hi, folks.

I am the current managing editor of eAdventure, an Action/Adventure mag from the eFiction community. We aim to deliver pulse-pounding stories in the spirit of the pulp magazines of yesteryear. Our original website was shut down due to a nasty virus attack, but we are back and seeking submissions for our first issue. You can find the guidelines and submit your work here: http://www.efictionmag.com/submissions/

As of now we are a nonpaying magazine, but hope to change that in the near future.

Thank you!
-David

Apologies. Here are the guidelines for the mag:

We aim to deliver stories of action and adventure in the spirit of the pulp magazines of yesteryear. We want stories that make the heart race, the blood pumping, the palms sweaty, and the adrenaline flowing. The title says it all: we want action!


Anything goes in our first issue. Westerns, spy thrillers, police dramas, or anything that revolves around action and adventure.


Strong, believable characters and an engaging plot are a must. Also note that this is not a market for fantasy or sci-fi adventures. There are other magazines at eFiction that covers those genres. Keep your stories down to earth.


Please do not send us rough drafts! Stories with a gross amount of spelling and/or grammatical errors will be rejected.

Include a brief biography and a one sentence synopsis of your story in a cover letter. Your bio must be less than 200 words and be in the third person. Submissions without a bio will not be accepted.


Please include contact information in the body of the story itself and/or in the cover letter.
We accept stories up to 10,000 words. Anything longer than that will have to blow us away. Flash fiction is also acceptable.

Non-exclusive publishing rights. This means that previously published work (as long as you hold the rights to it) is OK, and after publication you may publish the work elsewhere. You retain your rights.

We are a small group and we get a lot of submissions. Please give us 6-10 weeks minimum to get back to you. You can track your submission on Submittable (http://www.submittable.com/).
