Essays from 3,000 to 5,000 words.

We are interested in rigorous critical examinations of any facet of literature or other media within the speculative fiction genre. We would like to see works which look at aspects of the long history of science fiction, fantasy and horror, as well as those which deal with recent works and movements within the field. We welcome critical work on speculative fiction throughout the world.

Please submit essay proposals including a 400-word abstract, and a bio detailing your academic and/or critical background. Do not submit complete essays unless requested.

Proposals may be emailed to: critreviewspecfic@gmail.com
