From the Something Wicked guidelines:

We accept submissions of original, never-before-published science fiction and horror short stories. Stories should be between 2000 and 8000 words, though the sweet spot tends to be around the 3500 – 5500 word mark.

We love all types of science fiction, from hard-sf, to political, far-future, near-future, alternate history, sociological, whatever. We like strong character based, supernaturally tinged horror.
