A reminder: submissions open for Best of British Science Fiction 2023

 Best of British Science Fiction 2023

is now open for submissions.


We are seeking science fiction stories (not fantasy or any other flavour of genre in this instance) that were first published during 2023. Authors must be British, Irish, British-based or ex-pats. 


This is a reprint anthology, so we are not interested in seeing previously unpublished work on this occasion.


There are no limits on word length, though stories over 10,000 words may prove to be a harder sell.


Successful authors will receive payment of 1p a word up to £50.00 for the reprint rights. They will also receive contributors' copies of the completed book.


Submissions should adhere to standard manuscript format, and should be sent as an attachment (doc, docx, or rtf). Please do not send PDFs or links to published work without an attached document in one of the formats mentioned. Please send only the final version of your work as published. 


Please note the following:

1. Where conventional speech punctuation applies, please use double quotes rather than single.

2. Where you wish a word to appear in italics, please present it in italics and DO NOT UNDERLINE.

3. Where the word ‘okay’ appears in your text, please present it as such rather than as ‘OK’.


We receive a large number of stories so can afford to be selective. Please, therefore, send your very best work to series editor Donna Scott, who will once again be at the helm.


Submissions to: donnanewconpress@gmail.com


Submissions close at midnight, UK time, on Sunday December 17th, 2023.


See the Newcon Press site for the catalogue listing.
