Golden Age Early Acceptance for House of Zolo

HOZ are looking for literature that explores possibilities for the future.  We want challenging short stories that are character driven, that reimagine the world and our place in it.  We are looking for radical authors, feminist authors, LGBTQ2S authors, authors who experiment.  Themes that thrill us:  transhumanism, artificial intelligence, genetic engineering, new systems, resistance, activism, queer perspectives, feminist perspectives, nature.  This was the call from independent Canadian publisher House of Zolo for the HOZ JOURNAL OF SPECULATIVE LITERATURE, a new literary magazine featuring quality works of speculative fiction and poetry.  I was interested in the humanist slant to the themes they cited and, they being open to some reprints, I thought of a story originally published in Spring 1994 in Catherine Asaro’s magazine MINDSPARKS (also reprinted in ZIPPERED FLESH 3, see February 3 2017 et al.), “Golden Age,” about surgical life prolonging procedures that might lead to physical immortality — or, to the point, the effect on the person who’s the first to try these.

So I sent it out and today a reply came, that while the process is still in flux, [w]e wanted to accept your story right now, though, because it is exactly what we are looking for, with specifics to come in the next few weeks.  The HOZ JOURNAL OF SPECULATIVE LITERATURE is expected to be published twice a year, with the first, I think, scheduled later in 2019.  More will be reported here as it becomes known.
