K-Zine: Now Accepting Submissions of Short Stories

This UK-based magazine is published in print and on Kindle. The goal of the magazine is to provide quality original genre fiction. The genres they publish are science fiction, horror, fantasy and crime. Length guidelines are 1,000-8,000 words.

They usually publish around seven stories per issue. Their covers are very eighties-inspired but generally a lot of fun. Their website is very basic, and not particularly visually appealing.

They try to respond to a lot of their submissions personally, even if they are rejecting them. They also are a paying market. They offer token payments, and a theoretical royalty, although only if over 450 copies are sold.

All submissions must be made through email. Please read their submission guidelines closely, to make sure your work matches what they are asking for, before submitting.
