German Anthology Seeks International Submissions

Editor Erik Schreiber at Saphir im Stahl is putting together an ambitious anthology titled “80 Science Fiction Stories Around the World.”

In this book he’s hoping to collect one science fiction story each from 80 different countries!

Mr. Schreiber has indicated that he already received stories from Chile, Colombia and Spain. My own “The Miracle on Tau Prime,” originally published at Daily Science Fiction, will represent USA. Most other countries are still open, and if you have a story you would like to see translated into German and to appear in this book, contact Mr. Schreiber at

He’s looking for science fiction stories 4-5 double-spaced pages long, 900 characters per page  (that’s up to about 1500 words). Submissions in all languages will be considered if possible, and he asks that authors include a brief bio.

Added on 2/6/13: Acceptances confirmed from Canada and UK! If your story was accepted from one of the other countries, please post in the comments.

    Thanks for that, Alex. Perhaps I should aim for the UK spot…
