In Science Fiction’s lost Golden Age, legendary editor John Campbell occasionally provided various ideas to different writers and then published the resulting stories in Astounding Science Fiction. In like manner, these are general concepts that we are interested in seeing submitted to us. Please keep in mind that at present, the shortest works we publish are novellas of at least 15,000 words.
While we normally require completed drafts for submissions, in the case of Castalia Concept-based submissions, we are willing to review five-chapter novel submissions of the book or series so long as they are accompanied by a complete and detailed outline. Novella submissions should still consist of complete drafts.
