We're thrilled to announce that Cassandra Khaw's story from 2084, 'Degrees of Ellision', has been shortlisted for STARBURST Magazine's Brave New Words Award!
Thanks to everyone who came down to Unsung Live 4 last night at The Star of Kings. Fresh off the back of the Nine Worlds convention, it was great to see so many people still up for spending their Tuesday night in a pub listening to speculative short fiction.
Unsung Live #3

After the success and all-round fun of Unsung Live #2, we're happy to announce our return to The Star of Kings for our third evening of storytelling for fans of speculative fiction. The event is FREE but space is limited, so make sure to RSVP on our Meetup page.
Short story writers of the world, assemble! That's right, in a bold attempt to give this week something even more exciting than the Age of Ultron trailer, Unsung Stories is now open for submissions of short fiction! Hulkbuster armour? Pah.
This is something we've been thinking about all the way back when we didn't even have a name, just a desire to make great books. It's a big part of the reason we're doing this. We want to give new authors a platform for their work to be read, a chance to share their work with the world.
We'll be starting off in November with a story by Aliya Whiteley because, well, what better way to start something? We'll be featuring a story by Ian Hocking in the near future as well.
We'll be aiming at fortnightly publication to start and they'll be sent out to our mailing list as well as posted here on the site. We're after the best we can get our hands on here, so spread the word to all of your talented friends, especially the ones hoping for a break. They're our favourites.
You can get the full, gory details, including the submission forms and some guidance on what we like, from our Short fiction page on the site.

This is an intellectual love letter. Some stories are good. Some are great, and when I say great I mean that staggering kind of great that makes you want to read it again immediately, and then emulate it as best you can. One such example of the latter is Deus Ex Arca by Desirina Boskovich
