Queer Sci Fi Review Submissions
We have a number of reviews already on the site. You can visit our past reviews HERE.
Queer Sci Fi reviewers are composed of fellow authors, readers, fans, cosplayers, allies, and those who identify as part of the rainbow. We have joined for the common goal of spreading the word and celebrating queer speculative fiction.
By submitting your work, you agree to have the QSF reviewers provide an honest review. We do not guarantee positive reviews, and in the spirit of integrity we do not censor our reviews. Our opinions are our own and reviews are the property of the reviewer. We as QSF are not responsible for reviews appearing anywhere but on QSF-controlled channels.
In the spirit of community, we do not post ratings on our website, and we will not post reviews that contain personal attacks or unsubstantiated claims of malfeasance. Basically, we try to not say anything we wouldn’t feel comfortable saying to an author’s face. The base of these principles is made up of our deep respect we have for our authors and the work they do.
That being said, QSF reviewers are volunteers, so we ask your understanding if we cannot review a title for any reason.
If you would like to submit a work for review, please fill out the form below. All works should include at least one LGBTIQA main character and should be some variant of speculative fiction: science fiction, fantasy, paranormal, or horror. Your request will be added to a submissions sheet where our reviewers may elect to read it, in which case you’ll be contacted by an admin from the information provided.
Don’t worry about filling the genre and LGBTQ+ categories out perfectly–all reviewers are given the link you provide to your work.
If this review request is time sensitive, as in you’d like it to be a part of a review tour for a new release, please contact Scott directly and mention your request is time sensitive (keep in mind, you may still be required to fill out the form–thank you for your understanding).
If you have any questions, please contact Scott: firstname.lastname@example.org
About Ben Brock:
Queer Sci Fi Administrator
Ben’s personal interests run along adult Mystery/Thrillers and Science Fiction, but he reads a variety of speculative fiction subgenres in all genders and sexualities.
About Andrew: Andy is an award-winning author, an educator, and an activist. His novel The City of Seven Gods won the 2017 Silver Falchion Award (Best Horror/Fantasy) and was a finalist in the 2016 Foreword INDIES (Best Sci Fi/Fantasy). He is also the author of the Werecat series, Poseidon and Cleito, two books for young adults (The Seventh Pleiade and Banished Sons of Poseidon), and most recently the romantic comedy Irresistible. Oh, and he’s a Hufflepuff.
About Dan: Dan Ackerman is a writer and educator who has lived in Connecticut for their entire life. They received their BSED from CCSU in 2013 and wrote their Master’s thesis on representations of women in same-sex relationships in contemporary Spanish literature and cinema. Currently, Dan is studying for a second MA in ABA and works in a center school for students with a variety of intellectual, developmental, or multiple disabilities. In their spare time, Dan continues to read and write, supplemented with a healthy amount of movie marathons and gaming.
About Georgiana: Georgiana’s a true military brat through and through. Currently, she lives in one part of the world and tomorrow, maybe another part. She doesn’t believe in having four walls in any aspects of her life. She’s a reader of all LGBTQ+ literature, but she really loves finding and getting lost in a great Grimdark Fantasy. No need for a happy ending, just a captivating adventure to keep her coming back for more. When her nose isn’t in a book, she enjoys exploring new territories, going on adventures, being crafty, and working with her hands.
About Siri: Siri Paulson loves nothing more than mixing up genres to see what will happen. She also wears the hats of non-fiction editor by day and chief editor of micro-publisher Turtleduck Press by night. Her other passion is contra (folk) dancing. Thankfully, her long-suffering spouse is good at keeping himself occupied. After growing up in Alberta, Canada, she moved to Toronto and achieved her lifelong dream of buying an old house, dubbed the TARDIS because it’s bigger on the inside. Other lifelong dreams include publishing novels (one and counting), travelling the world (so far, so good), and becoming an astronaut (still waiting on that one). She can be found at QueeRomance Ink, on her blog, and on Instagram. Her most recent publications are a short story in the anthology Timeshift, edited by Eric S. Fomley, and an m/m steampunk serial at Turtleduck Press.
