The Strange Horizons fiction department will be closing to submissions in November and December again this year.
We've unfortunately fallen behind again on reading and replying to submissions. We're not nearly as far behind as we were last year at this time, but we're still going to need some time to catch up. (And our average response time has again grown to much longer than we'd like, around six weeks right now.)
We're hoping to finish replying to all subs by the end of November or so. Of course, we said that last year, and it ended up taking us 'til late December, so no promises.
Anyway, so if there's anything you want us to consider before the end of the year, submit it to us by the end of October.
As usual, this applies only to the fiction department; all other departments will remain open.
