Submissions - Swords and Sorcery Magazine

At this time we are seeking original short stories of 1,500 to 6,000 words length that feature fantasy elements and pre-industrial settings. Historical and pseudo-historical settings are fine provided they are set before the 19th century. We are not looking for contemporary urban fantasy or steampunk stories. We enjoy reading these when they are well written but there are plenty of markets for them. As our name implies we welcome stories with action and overt magic but neither is necessary to make a good fantasy story.In addition to publishing fantasy stories Swords and Sorcery Magazine hopes to function as a forum for criticism within the genre.

(Unlocked as a goal from the BCS 200th Issue Subscription Drive. Thank you!) Beneath Ceaseless Skies publishes “literary adventure fantasy”: stories with a secondary-world setting and some traditional or classic fantasy feel, but written with a literary approach. Secondary-World Setting: We want stories set in what Tolkien called a “secondary world”: some other world that is different from our own primary world in some way. It could be different in terms of zoology (non-human creatures), ecology (climate), or physical laws (the presence of magic).

The inhabitants of this secondary world should have developed their own culture in response to the uniqueness of their world. We are NOT interested in urban fantasy or other types of stories set in the “real world,” even if they contain fantasy elements, or in stories that move between the real world and a fantasy world.
