Tyche publishes bold science fiction and fantasy novellas and novels (60,000 words minimum; 120,000 words maximum). We welcome stories that aren’t easily categorized; stories that push the boundaries; stories that aren’t afraid to challenge the reader. We will accept these stories in any sub-genre of science fiction and fantasy, including steampunk and slipstream.
What does that really mean?
So long as the critical part of the story depends on Science Fiction or Fantasy, we’ll take it.
