Hi Everyone

I hope this is the right place to post this, or that it is okay to post on the TTA forums, but I did so because I thought this would be of interest to writers of Interzone, as I'm certainly interested in reading the stories published in Interzone.

Extreme Planets is a science fiction anthology I am co-editing for Chaosium, of short stories set on or about alien worlds that push the limits of what we believe is possible in a planetary environment.

The anthology will be paying 3c/word. Full submission guidelines here.

Thanks
David

Thank you everyone. We've received some submissions already. Looking forward to what the next 6 months brings.

In the meantime here is an article from Space.com on some of the strangest extrasolar planets found out there in the galaxy, which might give writers some inspiration.

Remember also there are some extreme planets in our own solar system, such as Venus, Mercury, Jupiter, or moons such as Europa, Io, Titan and others that could make for interesting settings.

We're also interested in artificial worlds, of thelikes that Iain M Banks, Charles Stross, Alastair Reynolds or Larry Niven might have dreamt up.

Mostly, we're keen to see how humans, aliens or both have adapted to extreme conditions on alien worlds.

Extreme Plants is complete and here is the line-up and blurb:

EXTREME PLANETS

Edited by David Conyers, David Kernot and Jeff Harris

Introduced by Hugo and Nebula Award-winning author David Brin

Featuring stories from David Brin and Gregory Benford, Brian Stableford, Peter Watts, G. David Nordley, Jay Caselberg and many more

“A stellar line-up of writers presenting the most exotic worlds imaginable—prepare to have your mind blown!” — Sean Williams, Author of Saturn Returns and Twinmaker

Two decades ago astronomers confirmed the existence of planets orbiting stars other than our Sun. Today more than 800 such worlds have been identified, and scientists now estimate that at least 160 billion star-bound planets are to be found in the Milky Way Galaxy alone. But more surprising is just how diverse and bizarre those worlds are.

Extreme Planets is a science fiction anthology of stories set on alien worlds that push the limits of what we once believed possible in a planetary environment. Visit the bizarre moons, dwarf planets and asteroids of our own Solar Systems, and in the deeper reaches of space encounter super-Earths with extreme gravity fields, carbon planets featuring mountain ranges of pure diamond, and ocean worlds shrouded by seas hundreds of kilometres thick. The challenges these environments present to the humans that explore and colonise them are many, and are the subject matter of these tales.
The anthology features 15 tales from leading science fiction authors and rising stars in the genre:

“Banner of the Angels” by David Brin and Gregory Benford
“Brood” by Stephen Gaskell
“Haumea” by G. David Nordley
“A Perfect Day off the Farm” by Patty Jansen
“Daybreak” by Jeff Hecht
“Giants” by Peter Watts
“Maelstrom” by Kevin Ikenberry
“Murder on Centauri” by Robert J. Mendenhall
“The Flight of the Salamander” by Violet Addison and David Smith
“Petrochemical Skies” by David Conyers and David Kernot
“The Hyphal Layer” by Meryl Ferguson
“Colloidal Suspension” by Geoff Nelder
“Super-Earth Mother” by Guy Immega
“Lightime” by Jay Caselberg
“The Seventh Generation” by Brian Stableford

Extreme Planets is scheduled for release in late 2013 in both trade paperback and online e-reader formats. Cover illustration by Paul Drummond

Thank you to everyone who supported and submitted to this anthology. We got a lot of interest from Interzone readers and contributors. Included Interzone contributors include Paul Drummond, Stephen Gaskell, Jay Caselberg and Jeff Hecht.
