Headshots (200x200).png

The following androids are the punks who run this outfit. This crew puts a lot of time, love, and care into curating stories and working with authors to develop and prepare the work we publish. Editors are listed alphabetically by last name.

Robin Rose Graves is looking for:

  • mainly for science fiction, including contemporary with light science fiction elements, to even science fantasy or generally speculative. So long as it somehow can be considered scifi. Adult/New Adult/Young Adult.

  • LGBT characters for sure. Bonus points if it's a future that's past homophobia. I'll entertain manuscripts that depict homophobia so long as it has purpose in the story besides to make characters suffer.

  • Non-traditional family structures

  • Exploration of gender and/or presentation (I'm thinking books like The Unraveling like Benjamin Rosenbaum, where bodies can look however and appearance isn't attributed to gender)

  • Bioships/biotech

  • AI/Androids, particularly stories that explore motivations other than "trying to be human"

  • Aliens

pretty much anything that fits within the scope of the press, but he’d particularly love to see

  • Stories that defy.

  • Stories that resist.

  • Stories that are kind, sincere, and unbowed. 

  • Stories that find the light. 

  • Stories that are home.
