7 thoughts on “Queer Sci Fi/Speculative Fiction Publishers”

  1. One, I would appreciate it if you’d spell it out Less Than Three Press. That’s how it’s written on the website.

    Two, we accept all genres. Contemporary, Sci-fi, Fantasy, Paranormal, etc. All heat levels. All pairing types except cis-het.

    I’m not sure why it doesn’t list paranormal, given we have that category on the website. And we’ve never, to my knowledge, put a limit on the kind of sci-fi we accept.

    Thank you,
    Megan

    • Thanks, Megan – just updated the info. I think one of your writers told us about LT3 – so that may be where the info came from. 🙂

  2. I have self-published my sci-fi trilogy which has a compelling aspect of gender contemplation for the reader. Having self-published, have I disqualified my books for consideration by publishing houses?
