Online Canadian e-zine Lackington’s is looking for "speculative fiction between 1,500 – 5,000 words in length. The “spec” element can be overt or subtle (so blow us away with realism if it possesses the merest twinge of strangeness). Fantasy, SF, slipstream, post-apocalyptic, magic realism, mythopoeia, folktale, or any flavour of ‘punk — it’s all good, BUT WAIT! Read this before submitting — meeting our style preference is our foremost demand. We’re excited by stories by, or representative of, members of traditionally marginalized communities. We are never excited by fanfic, so please don’t send us any. We’re not a horror market, either, though we embrace dark elements." Payment: CAD1¢/word; no reprints, electronic submissions only, see guidelines for more details.
