Space Opera Digest 2021

Fight or Flight

Call for Submissions


Submissions have closed.  Thank you for your interest.

Edited by Mark Posey

Stories Rule Press is now seeking submissions for Space Opera Digest, our upcoming commercial fiction anthology to be published in January 2021, to be titled Fight or Flight.

The theme is “a relentless foe”, and the story should conform to space opera genre expectations.  We will be minimizing the number of Military SF stories.  Instead, we are looking for stories that explore the theme from all angles within the space opera genre.

Submissions should be new, original work (no reprints).

Theme: A relentless foe.
Deadline: September 30, 2020
Length: 5,000 – 10,000 words
Pay: revenue share


Payment is by revenue share.  We are asking for six months exclusivity.  After the initial six months have passed, you are free to place the story elsewhere.

Authors will be expected to set up a BundleRabbit account, if they don’t already have one.

A short contract will be signed between SRP and each author appearing in the anthology.

The success of revenue share projects lies in the authors’ cross-promotions to their readers, and social networks.  Authors will be provided marketing materials and will be expected to contribute to the launch promotions.  Plans and guidelines will be provided.

Who should submit

We are looking for authors who have a track record in publishing space opera, either via traditional markets or indie published, and can bring an active readership to the table.  Newer authors with only one or two titles are welcome to submit.  We are looking for a mix of new and seasoned pros.

How to Submit

Deadline for submissions is September 30, 2020

Send your manuscript as an attachment.  Manuscript should be formatted according to the standard modern manuscript format (details here).

In your covering email, please provide:

  1. A short (200 words approximately) bio.
  2. The URL for your author website.
  3. The email address you use for your BundleRabbit account.

Send all submissions to

Submissions sent after the close date which have not been previously discussed with SRP will not be considered or responded to.
