Hot off the WordPress! New Australian Spec-fic webzine, with a pitch that goes a little something like this:
“Paisley Stitchington’s Speculative Buggle is an online journal publishing fiction and “not fiction” from Australian authors. No longer will you have to go on uncomfortable journeys to the local haberdasher just to acquire an underhand copy of so-called “print books”. NO!!!
For now you will be able to READ FICTION from the comfort of your own armed chair. And possibly other locations. We have done minimal research on reading habits.
So where do you fit in?????
Paisley Stitchington’s Speculative Buggle is seeking submissions from Australian authors of science fiction, fantasy, horror, slipstream and all of their associated brethren genres and drunken uncles.
Length: up to 5000 words
Genre: any speculative genres – SF, F, H, slipstream, etc
Submissions should be saved in rich text (rtf) format and emailed to:
paisleystitchington (at) gmail (dot) com
Please include a brief cover letter with your details (including your Australian-ness so we know you haven’t just spammed us) and approximate word count.
Turnaround: < 3 months
First world electronic rights.
Don’t sent multiple submissions. It makes you look like new money.”
