Call for Submissions

From Rob Tyler: R-Spec is accepting submissions for their 2nd anthology, "Alternative Rochesters," until March 31. Don't be fooled by the hard sci fi feel of the home page (or the cryptic comments in the right hand column - the dangers of too much automation!) - they love experimental fiction, magical realism, slipstream, and fantasy, with the emphasis not on genre but on literary quality. So dust off your memoirs, change a date or two, add an extraterrestrial or a dragon, and submit. And - set it in or around Rochester. Now, it could be "New Rochester," under a dome in a Martian crater, or the UFP Rochester trans-generational colony ship en route to Andromeda, or.... The first anthology included work by Nancy Kress, Nick DiChario, Jonathan Sherwood and JacK Garner so you'll be in good company.
