SUBMISSIONS

UNDERLAND PRESS is always keen on previously unpublished novel-length works of science fiction, fantasy, dark fantasy, and noir mystery with a tinge of otherworldliness. We don't mind slipping into horror, but prefer it to remain more psychological and strange than gore-filled. We are not terribly rigorous in our definitions of these genres. We prefer character-driven pieces but don't mind being kept up late due to a tightly wound, plot-driven book. Our interest is piqued by material that is not strictly beholden to the history of and/or culture of Western European civilization.

At this time we are NOT looking for short fiction collections, novella-length material, first books in series, Young Adult (YA) or Middle Grade (MG) material, and works that have been previously self-published. We will—in all likelihood—bounce submissions that fall into these categories.

In more concrete terms: novels should be between 75K and 100K in length. Submission format should be .doc, .rtf, or .pdf. Please submit them to editors@underlandpress.com with a brief cover letter that hits the highlights. Please wait 3 months before querying about your manuscript.
