    Our Needs

    What we’re looking for:
    Original speculative fiction: horror, fantasy, and science fiction. We're looking for short stories from across the big classifications and those shadowy places between: magical realism, fantastique, slipstream, interstitial, and the Weird. We will consider suspense or western, though we prefer it contain some speculative element. We like voices that are full of feeling, from literary to pulpy, with styles unique and flowing, but not too experimental. All labels aside, we want tales that expand genre, that value imagination in character, narrative, and plot. We want to see something new and different.
    We encourage diverse authors, characters, and points of view; inclusive of all races, cultures, creeds, genders, orientations, expressions, status, and abilities.
    Our issues include audio readings. If your story is accepted, you will have the opportunity to record your story, have a colleague do so, or one of our narrators.
    What we’re NOT looking for:
    We are not interested in fan fiction, novel excerpts, or memoir. We do not publish poetry, reviews, essays, interviews, or other non-fiction. We are not considering reprints or outside artwork.
    We do not publish erotica per se, but we don’t mind some hotness in context of the story.
    We are not looking for extreme horror. Please avoid excessive descriptions of violence or gore.
    Though 3LBE’s title echoes a line from an H.P. Lovecraft story, our publication is not a Cthulhu Mythos-themed venue. We’re open to the occasional “Lovecraftian” short or cosmic horror tale, though we prefer that you make the story your own.
    For legal reasons, writers must be at least 18 years old.

    Whew. Took the plunge and actually submitted something there. First submission since... like... 2005?

    I'll forget about it by the time I get the rejection.
