What we are looking for: 

The editors are not in the business of stifling talent or ideas so as a standard rule we will read anything sent to us of a speculative nature. 

Altair is primarily looking for Science Fiction or Fantasy based stories with a blending of the two genres being especially welcome. Literary works will also be considered, (be warned though, we consider too many symbolic references can weaken a good story). Space Opera and
Sword and Sorcery type stories will be read, but try to make them original. 

We look for stories that are driven by both the storyline and the characters. If you are going to use high tech jargon or ancient rhetoric, make sure it is integral to the story and the characters. Think about your characters, consider the plot carefully and, above all, be sure it is a story that you are sending us! 

Good writing to you all."
