Email Glitch During Submission Period
Due to the recent emergency change in the Worlds Enough website and email hosting service, we experienced an email glitch during the submission period for “Fantastic Detectives.” Unfortunately, a small number of submissions were lost because of the glitch. Accordingly, we have reopened the submission period until April 30 to allow for re-submissions. See the blog post for more details about the whole mess.
“Fantastic Detectives” Submissions Are Closed
The Call for Submissions for the anthology is now closed. Thank you for your submissions. We’ll try to process all of them as quickly as possible.
Our hosting service was bought by GoDaddy, which promptly decided to shut down all of the more advanced subscribers that they didn’t want, including us. We are now moving the website and email functions to a new hosting service on an emergency basis. Wish us luck.

The submission period for “The Forever Inn” has now been closed.
