"Science Fiction" means—to us—everything found in the science fiction section of a bookstore, or at a science fiction convention, or amongst the winners of the Hugo awards given by the World Science Fiction Society. This includes the genres of science fiction (or sci-fi), fantasy, slipstream, alternative history, and even stories with lighter speculative elements. We hope you enjoy the broad range that SF has to offer.

Form Rejection

Eric Fomley's work has appeared in Galaxy's Edge, Flame Tree Press, and The Black Library. This is his fifth appearance in Daily Science Fiction. You can read more of his work at ericfomley.com or follow him on Twitter @PrinceGrimdark.

Dear Grinjib,
Thank you for letting us see your story, "How Grinjib the Eternal will Destroy Earth with his Fleet of Space Demons." We very much appreciated the opportunity to read it. Unfortunately, we have decided to pass at this time.
We enjoyed the power and aggression evident in the character's voice, and the descriptions of how Grinjib would feast on the severed heads of Earth's leaders were quite vivid. However, we didn't find Grinjib's declaration that there was a cloaked fleet surrounding Earth very convincing.
Best of luck placing this elsewhere. Please try us again soon.
