[Call for Submissions] "Where The Stars Rise: Asian Science Fiction and Fantasy Stories"

Word's been gettng around about ‘Where The Stars Rise: Asian Science Fiction and Fantasy Stories–An Anthology Project with A Cause.’ This is an anthology project by Laksa Media seeking short speculative fiction of no more than 7,000 words.

According to the organizers:
"This speculative fiction anthology will contain original stories to celebrate Asian diversity, featuring an Asian main character, Asian setting and/or some amount of Asian elements, by authors with an Asian heritage. Our definition of Asia ranges from the Pacific Rim, across the continent of Asia, to and including the Middle East. Authors do not need to reside in Asia to participate in this anthology."

They welcome translated story from other languages to English (no English reprints).

Contributors will be paid CAN 6 cents per word. A portion of Laksa Media’s net revenue from this anthology will go directly to support one of the programs provided by Kids Help Phone.

In addition, Laksa Media will donate CAN$500 upon the publication of this anthology. You can learn more about the anthology at: The submissions open December 1st. The final submission dateline for stories is May 31, 2016.
