Description: ZAHIR is a tri-annual journal of speculative fiction.

Editor(s): Sheryl Tempchin

Needs: We are looking for well crafted speculative fiction--stories that challenge ordinary notions of reality, or that look at reality in new, imaginative ways. This can include science fiction, fantasy, surrealism, magical realism, or something unclassifiable that we haven't thought of yet. The thing we care about most is good, entertaining storytelling.

Length: Any length up to around 6000 words, although we will consider longer pieces if they are exceptional.

Rights: First worldwide serial rights, or one-time reprint rights

Payment: $10 plus 2 contributors copies

Tips: The stories we are most likely to buy have interesting, well developed characters, and/or ideas that fascinate, thrill, chill, or amuse us. They must have some element of the fantastic or surreal.

How to Submit: Regular mail: Submit complete manuscript with SASE. See website for details.

Response Time: Queries: 2 days to 2 weeks
_x000D_ Submissions: 2 to 8 weeks
