TESSERACTS 12 Now Open for Submissions

Hey gang –

For all you writer types out there (or at least the Canadians amongst you), Tesseracts 12, the latest installment of the long-running Canadian SF anthology series, is now accepting submissions. Details and links below.

This volume is edited by Claude Lalumière, and for the first time is devoted to novella- / novelette-length stories, from 10,000 to 20,000 words.

I assumed that since I’d been in one Tesseracts volume I likely wouldn’t submit a story to future volumes, just because these anthologies seem to me a great place to showcase new Canadian SF talent–I’ve already had my kick at the can 🙂

But given that I have one 15 000-word story I’m currently revising, well, maybe I’ll send it in just in case… 🙂
