Per Aspera seeks outstanding novel-length manuscripts. We specifically look for character-driven stories which are built around a big idea or develop a deep theme, and which make a significant contribution to the speculative fiction genre.

However, we are currently overbooked with submissions and are CLOSED to unsolicited manuscript and art submissions. At this time, if you send a query or a manuscript without having been asked to send it, we won’t read it. If you would like to be notified when we open for submissions, sign up here.
