Infinity Wanderers

New Magazine


Infinity Wanderers is a new magazine dedicated to promoting alternate history and the associated genres of Science Fiction, Steampunk, Historical Fiction and Fantasy. In addition we aim for between 1/3 and 1/2 real history and writers of Historical features are welcome to submit.


Whilst considered part of the Scimitar Edge stable, Infinity Wanderers goes out under the self-publishing 'Selornia' marque as a magazine, and not a book.


Issue 1 of Infinity Wanderers was published in April 2022 and issue 2 in July 2022, and the aim is for a four-times-annual publication, including a Christmas and New Year Special. Issue 3 is due for publication in October 2022.

Submissions to Infinity Wanderers


Open Submissions Policy
We have an open submissions policy and all submissions will receive an acknowledgment and one of the following responses:-

- Acceptance
- Request for changes
- Rejection

We aim to reply within a fortnight from receiving the submission, and usually it will be within the first few days. If we have too many submissions for immediate issues, we may request that we file you as pending for inclusion in a later issue; it is up to you to accept this, or choose to resubmit at a later date.

How To Query and Submit
Infinity Wanderers prefers all submissions to be made electronically by email, but messaging on social media is acceptable to query. The ability to send postal submissions is available on request (an address will be emailed to you).

As we claim no copyright on submissions, we are receptive to simultaneous submissions, but please note that if it is agreed that we publish it, we do not guarantee to remove it post-publication if you require this for another publication you have submitted to.

You may submit as many pieces you wish per issue, but if we decide to use any, we will choose which one, or ones, of those you submitted that we wish to feature. Our decision to publish some of the pieces in a bulk submission does not imply our acceptance of those we do not choose to publish.

As Infinity Wanderers does not claim copyright on submissions, we will accept pieces that have been displayed previously on personal websites, bulletin boards, and writing websites. We are open to Republishing, but please ensure, if submitting something classed as published elsewhere, that you have not already assigned copyright, or if you have that their rules allow republishing with, or without, acknowledgment.

Submissions should be emailed to editor@scimitaredge.com

Terms and Conditions
By agreeing to be published in Infinity Wanderers you signify the acceptance of the following Terms and Conditions. Please make sure you have a read through of them. We have crafted them so as to be to the best advantage of both parties.

Copyright
- For submitted fiction, articles, essays, poems and art work all copyright remains with the original author, who hereby gives Infinity Wanderers the right to publish in the issue in question, to use extracts solely for the purposes of marketing and promotion, and to keep the issue in print as long as the Editor deems appropriate (usually a minimum of 2 years). Author photographs, book covers and small extracts may be placed on Infinity Wanderers' webpages for this purpose - you may request that we do not, if you wish.

- Copyright is vested in Infinity Wanderers for articles, interviews and features that are created by the Editor (and only these). We will inform you as a courtesy if the article, interview or feature is to be used for purposes other than above. If we use your artwork in an article, we make no claims on it, and if we wish to use the article elsewhere we will contact you and request permission to include your artwork.

- If a work accepted for publication in Infinity Wanderers turns out to breach copyright the author, who retains sole copyright, shall be solely liable.

- Pursuant to the above, Infinity Wanderers does not accept fiction or derivative art works that would require a copyright release. Please note, that a recent ruling in the US has placed the original Sherlock Holmes stories out of copyright and we will consider fiction that is based on these, but note that anything subsequent to 1920 remains in copyright

- As a publication Infinity Wanderers has a duty to ensure, where possible, that articles are not libelous or actionable, and may reject articles on that basis, or request that changes be made. Our failure to do so does not imply liability, and the author shall be solely liable.

Payment
- Infinity Wanderers does not pay for submissions, interviews or featured articles. All submissions, interviews and featured articles are accepted on this basis. All accepted authors and artists will receive a personal DRM-free copy of the e-magazine in the format requested (epub, mobi or pdf).

- Infinity Wanderers does not charge for inclusion, and unpublished first-time authors, essayists and artists are not only welcome but invited to submit. Non-payment does not extend to advertisements and sponsored features, which will be clearly marked.

Decisions
- The sole right to decide which submissions are accepted for publication rests with the Editor. Anything accepted for publication will be published in the first issue with vacancies, and it is understood that this may not be the immediately pending issue. Exceptions will apply for themed issues where submissions are accepted well in advance and will be held over to be published in the intended special issue.

- Acceptance does not imply a legal contract.

- Invitations to submit a story, poem, article or other feature do not comprise a contract to publish. Confirmation will be made by the Editor after assessing quality and relevance of the received submission.

Editing
Articles, Features and Reviews accepted for submission may be edited for sense or grammar. This will not apply to short stories or poems that are accepted; if we have queries about these, we will contact you before confirming acceptance for publication.
