Afrocentric Books is taking submissions for a steampunk anthology.

We want adult stories. No erotica, though some erotic or romance elements are acceptable. Bring us your steam machines, airships, pulleys, and cogs. Your story can be steeped in magic, science, or both. It can be an alternate history, an alternate universe, or another world entirely. But let’s not limit ourselves. Your characters can live in the aether, as long as the story’s main underlying theme is built on a steampunk foundation.

We want diverse characters in diverse settings and diverse cultures, with a main character of indigenous African descent. Please read our general submission guidelines prior to submitting.

1,000-7,500 words, although we’ll consider pieces that fall outside those parameters on a case-by-case basis. Multiple and simultaneous submissions ok. No reprints.

If accepted, pay is 1 cent per word. The deadline for submissions is May 5, 2017.

 

Submit here.
