March 2015 Story Now Live; Submissions Now Closed

March has arrived, and with it a lovely story by Jedd Cole called “Still Life.” When Jedd Cole is not writing stories, one can find him brooding over the pages of other worlds both real and imaginary (but mostly imaginary), usually accompanied by his wonderful wife. His stories have appeared or are forthcoming in Daily Science Fiction, Plasma Frequency Magazine, and Quantum Fairy Tales, among several others. Find him and his creative writing blog at or like his Facebook page at

As it’s now March, submissions are officially closed, though unofficially we don’t mind if you’re a few days late.

This period we received heavier submissions than anticipated, which has unfortunately made our targeted response time of 30 days unachievable. We know how frustrating waiting for responses is, so we’d like to apologize to those of you who’ve had to wait. With that said, we should have responses out to everyone within a week, come hell or high water. We’ll update our guidelines page to reflect a more realistic response time (which we really should have done earlier). If you don’t hear from us before Monday the 8th, send a query to rmason AT asterismpress DOT com.
