Unagented submissions: Email submissions only. We prefer novels in the 100-150k length for adult fiction- please, no submissions shorter than 85k. We are looking for adult fantasy in the subgenres of epic fantasy, sword & sorcery, steampunk, and contemporary/urban fantasy. No horror, science fiction, or slipstream.

We are looking for speculative Young Adult fiction in any subgenre. These manuscripts may be shorter.

Please send an email which includes your name, address, telephone number, and a one to three paragraph synopsis of your work, along with the manuscript attached as a Word doc or RTF file, to RSears at prometheusbooks dot com. Note that due to the volume of submissions a detailed reply in the case of a rejection may not be possible (and is unlikely).
