Neil Clarke is looking for short story submissions, and he describes the anthology’s subject matter requirements:
“Obvious Requirement: Cyborgs or cyborg-related issues must play a role in the story.
Feel free to explore this theme as widely as you like. Have fun with it and keep in mind that not all cyborgs need to be human.”
The deadline for this anthology is set for
September 15, 2013 (Update: October 31, 2013) , but they will revise after the first week of submissions. You can find all of the submission guidelines at Neil Clarke’s website.
