At 12:01 AM Newfoundland Standard Time on November 1, 2019, we closed the submissions folder for Pulp Sci-Fi from the Rock, the newest in the bestselling lineup of short fiction anthologies. All told we received over 60 entries amounting to over 200,000 words.
That will take some time for our returning series editors, Ellen Curtis and Erin Vance, to get through. Entrants can expect emails to start coming through near the end of the month, with public announcements of authors to start in early 2020. A quick glance at the titles submitted show some returning friends and a lot of new talent as well: we can’t wait to see how this shakes out.
Thanks for your patience, and stay tuned for the announcement of the next “From the Rock” theme! Also, keep your eyes peeled for the first From the Rock Presents title hitting stores in early 2020: The Lightbulb Forest: The Collected Short Fiction of Ali House.
