Our server was compromised by hackers in September of 2016. What seemed at first to be an easily fixed problem revealed itself to be more serious than we had thought, requiring a thorough gutting of our web presence so that we can rebuild anew. Rest assured that our data remains secure, that submissions predating the hack are still intact, and that emails are still getting through (though we apologize if we haven't responded; the backlog is huge).
We are rebuilding the site. We have changed servers. And we have ensured that we are getting the best professional security assistance to make sure that this doesn't happen again. We have sequestered the editorial board in secret meetings are taking advantage of this opportunity to address every aspect of AE that we have wanted to improve over the last five years.
We will be updating this site and our Twitter account with regular updates so please stay tuned. We will be reopening for submissions shortly and details will be available here. Financial assistance is welcome, but we have consciously put fundraising near the bottom of our priority list while we sort out these other issues. If you do wish to contribute time or money please contact us directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The call for submissions for AE's relaunch issue is now open! AE welcomes submissions from both established and emerging authors. We publish exclusively science fiction, though our interpretation of the genre can be quite inclusive. We are interested in stories from 500 to 3000 words in length. We are not soliciting poetry or screenplays at this time.
Please include a brief cover letter and the full text of your story (preferably in plain text) in the body of an email addressed to email@example.com. We will not open any attachments.
The very first thing in your subject line should be "CDN Sub" if you are a Canadian citizen or current Canadian resident, otherwise your subject line should begin with "INT Sub." This is very important, especially if you are Canadian. We publish a limited number of international stories. The subject line must also contain both the title and approximate word count of your piece, like this: "CDN Sub: 'Title of Story' (1300 words)." The cover letter should include your name, byline (if different) and a brief (50 words, at most) biography. We will contact you at the same email from which you sent your submission.
Submissions must be previously unpublished (in print or online) and should be strong enough to stand alone (i.e., no excerpts from a larger work). Simultaneous submissions are accepted, but please notify us immediately if your submission is accepted for publication in another venue. Please submit no more than one story at a time. We buy First Serial and First Electronic rights and non-exclusive Audio rights.
AE is proud to offer all fiction authors reimbursement of $0.10 CAD per word, paid within 60 days of acceptance.Submit a story
