Call for Submissions

If you write speculative fiction , check out Tor.com for your short stories.

Tor.com publishes a wide variety of speculative fiction including SF, fantasy, horror, and alternate history.  They are especially interested in stories under 12,000 words.

Editors include Patrick Nielsen HaydenLiz Gorinsky, Ann VanderMeer, and Ellen Datlow.

Payment is 25 cents a word for the first 5,000 words, 15 cents a word for the next 5,000, and 10 cents a word after that.  Frankly, that says stick as close to 5,000 words as possible which, for me, wouldn’t be all that tricky.  Short is, after all, my gift.

They don’t want queries but submissions sent to (tordotcomsubs)(at)(gmail.com) and by that they mean that the first part is spelled out (“tordotcomsubs,” not “tor.comsubs”).  And you need to make certain that your manuscript is a .doc not a .docx.

You are going to want to check out their full submissions guidelines to read up on the rights they acquire as well as what they want in the subject line of the email.

This is definitely a market worth checking out.
