Albedo One: Earn Up to €450 for Speculative Fiction

speculative-fiction-marketAlbedo One

Albedo One is Ireland’s foremost magazine of speculative fiction. The editors’ definition of what constitutes science fiction, fantasy or horror is very broad, so they are always seeking well-written speculative fiction that pushes at the boundaries or crosses between genres.

It’s strongly advised that authors read previous issues to gain a level of familiarity of the style and content the editors prefer. PDF copies of previous issues are available at a low cost.

Albedo One purchases First World English Rights for online, digital and print mediums. As soon as your story is published, all right revert back to the author.

Payment is €6 Euros per 1,000 words (approx. $6.46 US per 1,000 words) up to a maximum of 8,000 words. For example:  if your story is 7500 words you’ll receive €450 Euros, which is around $485 US dollars (exchange rate current as of April 2015).

Authors also receive a complimentary print copy of the magazine issue in which their story appears.

The editors will not accept previously published stories, nor will they accept simultaneous submissions. The editors will accept submissions of stories that may have been submitted online to workshops or critique groups, but the story must be removed from the workshop if it’s accepted for publication.

Response times vary between two and four months after submission date, so be patient before sending a query regarding your submission.
