Android Press accepts both unsolicited submissions and submissions made through agents.

Our novella/novel query submission window is currently open as September 1, 2022 for science fiction, fantasy, climate fiction, and light horror for Adult, New Adult, and YA markets, and will remain open until we've filled out our publishing schedule through 2024. Once the window opens, please do not submit a proposal query unless you have a completed manuscript you are prepared to submit upon request.

Some Basics

We are are a punk-themed outfit seeking to publish science fiction, fantasy, climate fiction, and light horror with speculative elements, including:

  • novellas (20,000–60,000 words)

  • novels (60,000–100,000 words)

  • short story collections [single author] (40,000–60,000 words) **

  • short story anthologies [numerous authors] (40,000–60,000 words) **\

    **not currently accepting proposals

Please do not submit more than one query proposal at a time. 

If you think a particular editor might be a good or best fit bast on their Manuscript Wish List, you can address your query to that editor. Otherwise, simply address your query "Dear Editors," and if one of our editors is interested in your proposal they will ask you to send them a partial or full manuscript for further review.


Please allow 60-90 days for a response.
If you haven't received a response after three months, feel free to inquire at info@android-press.com.

All manuscripts must have a science fiction or fantasy element that is central to the story or world to be considered.

We love narratives that are:

  • about scrappy, swashbuckling underdogs fighting to built a better world.

  • utopian, hopeful, dream big, and/or point us in the right direction.

  • focused on communities struggling to create a future in which nature, technology, and humanity coexist in harmony.

  • rooted in solving real world global social problems such as climate change and ecological destruction, authoritarian political systems, white supremacy, and corporate empire building. Yes, even when they take place in distant galaxies.
