We are interested in fantasy with a dark theme. We accept both works set in our Athuruin Shared Universe as well as original work in an original setting.
We only accept submissions that are high fantasy with a dark tone. We are aware of the many sub-genres of fantasy, however, and consider many varied versions, such as dark fantasy.
Tips From the Editor
Often the first things we do are skim the manuscripts for anything that would give it away as “off-genre” and are most certainly a disqualification. Some of these things include: cell phones or electronics, cars, couches, houses, apartments, radios, ballpoint pens, TVs, showers, flashlights, watches, sandwiches, teddy bears, raincoats, Earthly location names and settings, real languages (if the characters speak a variation of Tamil or Farsi, for example, it is fine. But no references to the actual language names themselves), modern colloquial terminology and jargon, teenagers (including the word itself).
Please adhere to guidelines and proofread before you submit.
