Shoreline of Infinity

Science Fiction magazine

We are looking for short stories up to 5,000 words.

We are looking for a good science fiction story. 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.


Maximum of 10,000 words please, but we do like short fiction too. We only have space to publish one longer length story in each issue.

What we Offer and Rights

We offer £10/1000 word, and we intend to increase this for future issues.

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, but your rights are returned to you after 6 months of original publication (digital or print), and you are free to publish how or where ever you like. 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.

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. 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!
