Supernova is practically the sole place in Russia promoting writers who appeared in the '80s and '90s. The following are a few of the authors who have appeared in our pages:
Supernova accepts SF and fantasy short stories (not horror as such) of 5-8000 words, and novelettes (10000 words), including those previously published in English or other languages during the last ten years provided the author him/herself will give us sole permission to publish the work in Russian translation.
Reply to the submission will be given within three months. A self-addressed postcard to ascertain receipt is useful.
The accepted manuscript will be published within a year. The main pay for the author will be promotion in the Russian book market. Translation itself won't cost the author anything.
We prefer paper mail submissions. Only submissions of already-published works need to be accompanied by a cover letter stating that the work in question may, with permission of the author, be translated into Russian and published in "Supernova" magazine. Unpublished unsolicited manuscripts may be sent by e-mail to the address: firstname.lastname@example.org. Preferred format: simple DOS text.
