Quantum Realities - Specualtive Science Fiction E-Magazine Submission Guidelines E-Magazine Overview Quantum Realities is a new e-magazine that focuses on publication of material related to speculative science fiction with an emphasis on controversial social science fiction.

This workshop generates significant, raw material for me. New characters and compelling stories emerge; sentences flow, and everyone contributes imaginative, heart-stuttering stories. It’s a word-feast, and I was strolling along eating it all up, licking my fingers—when it vanished, and I found myself with word-sticky fingers, staring at a blank page. I had characters, an idea, but they were elusive. It Came from the Slush Pile by Carol Pinchefsky - Intergalactic Medicine Show December 2005 It Came from the Slush Pile "I got a cover letter in the form of a jigsaw puzzle, where I had to piece it together.
