Are you the next Isaac Asimov? Or perhaps the new Douglas Adams? There’s only one way to find out, and it starts with getting published… and SciFiNow and Tor are here to help.
Millions of sci-fi and fantasy fans across the world dream of having their own novel on sale but unfortunately getting your opus published has always been a much tougher task than even the most skilled wordsmith would like… until now. Demonstrating our commitment to both the best in sci-fi and fantasy as well as emerging literary talent, SciFiNow has teamed up with leading SF imprint Tor to offer an unprecedented prize for one lucky reader: to get your SF masterwork published.
For many it will be the chance to realise a long-held ambition, to others it will be a totally new challenge, but the opportunity to prove yourself as one of the best new SF authors remains regardless of experience. SciFiNow and Tor are looking to champion the best new writers, and it’s down to you to prove yourself worthy.
To be in with a chance of winning this fantastic prize, readers must enter a full synopsis of their novel along with the first three chapters by 20 August. Needless to say the novel must sit comfortably within the sci-fi and fantasy genres.
After all the entries have been received, a shortlist of six will be drawn up. The winning entry will be decided on by a judging panel comprised of members of the SciFiNow team and Tor. The winner will be announced in SciFiNow #35 on sale 25 November.
