Editorial Focus

We publish a kind of fantastic fiction infrequently published in English. This fiction, which we would describe as irreal, rejects the tendency to portray people and places realistically and the need for a full resolution to the story; instead, it shows us a reality constantly being undermined.

Tips From the Editor

Forget formulas. Write about what you don't know, take us places we couldn't possibly go, don't try to make us care about the characters. Read short fiction by writers such as Franz Kafka, Kobo Abe, Donald Barthelme, Magnus Mills, Ana Maria Shua and Stanislaw Lem. Also read our Web site and guidelines. Please note that we only accept submissions by e-mail, and buy first time internet rights.
