Fission + Longlist

Two news items. First, the BSFA Awards longlists are out today. BSFA members can vote for the shortlists here (or check your January newsletter for a link). See also Nicholas Whyte’s heroic work enriching the list with hyperlinks and raising some eligibility queries (which will be reflected in the official list soon).

Second, Fission, the new annual fiction anthology from the BSFA, will shortly open to submissions. Editors Eugen Bacon and Gene Rowe say:

We’re excited to read your original science fiction stories (genre benders welcome)! The submissions window opens at midnight on 1 February, and closes at 11:59 pm on 15 March. Please submit to fission@bsfa.co.uk and put “Fission #2 submission” in the subject header. We invite original stories of up to 5,000 words, and offer a contributor payment rate of 2 pence per word. You don’t need to be a BSFA member to submit. We will also be inviting submissions for cover art.
