From the Hadley Rille Books guidelines:

Fantasy: We like epic and high fantasy. We like fantasies with strong female protagonists and characters (males are fine, too, but we like females figuring prominently). We're not talking about kick-ass heroines who don't wear much and yet can still wield a sword. We like common people who grow into different roles required by their circumstances, the way any human would if they had to.

Archaeological: There's an underlying archaeology theme to the majority of our non-fantasy books. These include books from our Archaeological Series and also many of our science fiction books. The Archaeology Series - "Archaeologically correct" short novels. These are largely mainstream books with maybe a hint of speculative fiction, but mostly would be classified as not part of the SF genre. Most of these books are invitation-only.

Science Fiction: Must have a strong archaeology theme. For example, an archaeologist as protagonist, the discovery of ruins (on Earth or elsewhere), a story about real life places where a vanished civilization has been discovered, a story about a made-up place on another planet where alien artifacts are discovered...these can include time travel, space travel, or other science fiction elements, they can be set in the past, present, or future.

Always query first during designated months when we're accepting queries and submissions.
