Shoreline of Infinity

Science Fiction magazine

We are looking for short stories up to 6,000 words.

We are looking for a good science fiction or fantasystory. Something that gives reality a tweak on the nose, an idea that makes us stop and think.

Broaden our horizons – look beyond the Shoreline.

Full details on the Submission Page.

Issue 18 of Shoreline of Infinity Science Fiction Magazine will be a special BAME (Black, Asian, and minority ethnic) edition, to be published in June 2020.

Entry criteria for this issue is purely by self-definition. We are looking for fresh, innovative SFF stories and poems from right across the spectrum, from the surreal to high octane space operas and everything in between so long as it has a speculative element.

Guest editors for this issue are Tendai Huchu and Raman Mundair.


Maximum of 6,000 words please.

What we Offer and Rights

We offer £10/1000 words.

We retain the right to continue selling back issues of Shoreline of Infinity and Shoreline anthologies containing your story.

We buy first digital and print world rights in English, and only ask you not to publish elsewhere for 6 months after the original publication (digital or print). However, it would be splendid if you could acknowledge first publication in Shoreline of Infinity.

What to Submit

We accept simultaneous submissions, but please do tell us immediately if you want to withdraw a submission. Submit a neatly formatted manuscript using Times 12 point double-spaced in Word format (.doc docx). Please use the submission process here - emailed manuscripts will be ignored.

Submit only one story or up to 3 poems.

Response Time

We will reply as soon as we can after your submission, but please do contact us if you have not heard within 3 months of the closing date. We know what it's like to be kept waiting, but we are only human (mostly).

And finally,

Please do read an issue or two first before submitting. This will give you an idea of the kind of story we are looking for, and it also supports the magazine, makes us feel good and that helps support the writers. Everyone is happy!
