The minds behind Tor.com’s original short fiction program love our slush pile. Some of our favorite fiction has been pulled from the ranks of our unsolicited submissions. Because we take our mission of publishing great fiction by new authors seriously, we have decided to go on hiatus from accepting submissions in order to respond to the large quantity of stories our reputation has attracted. Tor.com will not be accepting submissions starting August 1st until October 1st. Please note that this applies only to Tor.com’s short story program, and that the imprint will stay open to novellas and short novels until the end of August.
