NO EMAIL SUBMISSIONS IF WORK IS NOT SOLICITED 

ARTWORK 

Send a sample of your artwork -- as a hard copy or electronic (i.e. GIF or JPEG files) on a disk (preferred). Upon viewing your work, you may be offered an assignment -- all artwork, cover and within, are commissioned. 

All artwork bought are in greytone or black-and-white ink drawings. 


WRITING 

Fan fiction is not accepted. No simultaneous submissions, no 
reprints (unless originally published in a language other than English), and no multiple submissions. First Australian serial rights are sought. 

NOTE: Submissions with excessive spelling and/or grammatical errors are not read beyond the first page. Please do not submit first-draft copies of work. 

Please include a SSAE (IRCs -- International Reply Coupons if not in Australia) if you want your manuscript back. If not, have it marked "disposable". If you want a reply, include a 22cmx11cm envelope with sufficient postage (45c stamp within Australia; 2 IRCs minimum outside of Australia). No response will be forthcoming is not. E-mail addresses are an acceptable alternative to SSAEs. 

FORMAT 

All submissions should have a cover sheet with the following 
information centred on the page: 

Title of the story 
Your name 
Your pen name (if applicable) 
Your address 
Your email (if applicable) 
Genre 
Word count 
Phone number (optional) 

The story or article should be double spaced, on white or recycled A4 paper. The font should be no less than 12 cpi, font type Courier (or suitable font) and margins no less than 2.5 cm. There should be writing on only one side of a page. The story title should go on the top right hand corner of the page, along with your name and page number. If your work is accepted an electronic copy of it will be requested. This means a .txt version or a .doc version of your manuscript for Windows compatible PC. 

FICTION 

Short Stories 

Not more than 7500 words (no lower limit); any longer will only be accepted if exceptional. 

Any works of fantasy, science fiction or horror will be considered, as well as cross-genres fiction. What will not be considered are stories that: 

have child pornography 
have gratuitous gore 
have overused or stereotypical storylines 

What is wanted is something different to the norm. Experimental fiction is accepted. 

Poetry 

Filler poetry is accepted to 25 lines. No particular rules about 
what is accepted, other than having SF, fantasy or horror content or theme. 

 

NON-FICTION 

All articles are looked at with a view to publication. All 
references -- and must be referenced, not a bibliography; there is a difference -- will be checked. Any direct theories or hypotheses must be backed up with references. Articles should not be an abusive piece; Harbinger does not wish to deal with legal issues. 

Author Biography 

In every issue there is a biography of an Australian writer. This MUST NOT be a bare, dry presentation of facts, but a well-written life story up to 2000 words, preferably no longer. This is to be of any speculative fiction Australian writer that has sold at least 2 short stories published professionally or has at least one book published. Please contact the editor if this is a piece you wish to consider doing. 

PAYMENT 

Artwork 

$10 is paid for inside artwork, and $30 for cover art.

Payment is 1 Australian cent per word with a minimum of A$5 and a maximum or A$50. One contributor's copy distributed, and further copies are available to the writers at a discounted price upon request. Poetry is paid for at $5 per poem.
