Transcendent 3: The Year's Best Transgender Speculative Fiction 2017, edited by Bogi Takács
Lethe Press is seeking the best work of transgender-themed fiction with elements of the strange, the weird, the fantastic, horror and science fiction. Stories must be related to gender and/or sex minorities – transgender, genderqueer, nonbinary, gender non-conforming, etc. Intersex stories are welcome. Stories with ethnically/culturally specific minority genders/sexes are also welcome. We are very interested in stories where the author shares the characters’ marginalization (#ownvoices), but it is not a requirement.
All stories must have been originally published during the calendar year of 2017 (either in print or available in digital editions — self-published work is also included). Payment is upon publication and will range from $25 to $100 depending on the length of the work. No novellas, no work longer than 15,000 words.
Stories must be submitted by the deadline of Mar 10, 2018.
Please send submissions as attachments in doc or odt format to email@example.com with the header Transcendent 3 + your story title. Please include a short bio and state where the story was originally published.
