The JimFear138 Podcast Ep. 54 - Cirsova Submissions, #SteampunkMonth, & Speculative Fiction vs SFF

Hello, and welcome to another episode of the podcast! This week I'm going over the submission guidelines for Cirsova (get your stories ready!), Steampunk Month and the brilliant trolling of Jon Del Arroz, and talk a bit about horror's place in SFF and why I feel speculative fiction is a better umbrella term for the genre as a whole. Hope y'all enjoy!

  1. By past publication I mean "I don't care if you've had stories published in every big name SFF mag out there and have a million awards and a lengthy wikipedia page, all I care about is the story you're sending now."

    1. Okay so the story sent to you has to be original and unpublished? That seems reasonable. I'll have mine to you in a few days!

  2. Interesting information and education once ! thank for good post and sharing......
