As it says up top. Tor UK is now open for novel submissions. Good luck to everybody!

Bloody hellfire.

Now, if only I had a novel finished...

Luck, Erunanion, is where opportunity meets preparedness. You have the opportunity here, and yet are not lucky.

Neither am I. :(

Something to remedy before future windows of this sort, I imagine (though I also imagine that, as a US national, I might be ineligible for submitting in this window--didn't read the entire thing to find out)

No end date and open to all?

Hmmmm, good for TOR.

Indeed. Although I think I will have to work my way up to novel-length stuff, given that my output of even short story-length stuff is poor at the moment.

And re: being a US national, I think it says that Tor is open to submissions from outside the UK provided the novel is written in English.

And yes, this is a very good move. I wonder if this will presage change amongst the Big Six as a whole...

Or the "Big 5," since Random House and Penguin appear to be merging. Or the "Big 4," if HarperCollins follows through on buying Simon & Schuster.

Clarification, depending on weight of entries they may close it at times to be sure to get through the backlog in the 12 week period (said on their site further down) so just keep an eye on it.

Oh yeah, I saw.

But the only manuscript I currently have anywhere near completion doesn't really fall within their wheelhouse unfortunately (unless a few years post nuclear apocalypse counts as science fiction...?).

It is nice to know that, pending anything untoward happenings, this will be an ongoing thing, albeit with said potential breaks.

It counts as speculative fiction, at least. Kanticle for Leibowitz is considered sci fi I think, so no reason your story wouldn't count. The only way to be sur eis to send it in.
Check out my debut fantasy novel from Fox Spirit Books, The Hobgoblin's Herald (https://www.amazon.co.uk/Hobgoblins-Herald-R-Aston/dp/1910462047). If you've read it, please rate and review it on amazon; I'd be eternally grateful. The sequel, Eater of Names, is out in 2018, so watch this space.
