The Self-Publishing Committee of the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America, Inc. (SFWA) has announced an open call for submissions for two science fiction StoryBundles releasing in 2022. The submission window is open until October 17, 2021.
The overarching theme of the bundles will be “Rogues of the Future.” SFWA seeks all types of stories involving ne’er-do-wells in a science fiction setting. The “Con Artists of Tomorrow” Bundle will be available in February 2022. “Space Pirates and Thieves of the Future” will follow in August 2022.
J. Scott Coatsworth, chair of the SFWA Self-Publishing Committee, said, “Under the guidance of Sherrie Cronin this year, who organizes the SFWA StoryBundles, we’ve expanded from two bundles a year to four. We’re excited to offer twice as many chances for our indie and small press authors to participate in these bundles, and we welcome nonmembers to apply as well.”
StoryBundles are curated collections of books offered at a discounted price. Readers select what price they’d like to pay for an initial five books. They can unlock up to fifteen total by contributing more. Proceeds go to the participating authors and StoryBundle, and a small portion of the proceeds are donated to SFWA.
The SFWA Self-Publishing Committee will accept submissions through October 17, 2021, at 11:59 PM, US Eastern. For more details, including the full submission guidelines, visit the SFWA Blog here. If you have any questions, please email Storybundle@SFWA.org.
