Now accepting submissions.

Fishnetmag.com, the fiction magazine for the quality adult toy catalog, Blowfish, is back in business and is seeking quality erotica. We're a weekly ezine paying 4 cents per word up to 8,000 words for first web publishing rights and an option for first-time anthology rights (with additional compensation of 2 cents per word if selected). We want hot fiction that goes beyond a mere sex scene -- give us a good story, let us pant with your protagonist. Good writing is important, as is originality. Tender or melancholy stories are fine, but we're also not afraid of stories that push boundaries, that blur the lines of gender, propriety or even consent (though excessively gross/ gory pieces are not to our taste). Challenge our assumptions, but make our toes curl while you do it.

Reprints and poetry are ok, but will be a very hard sell. We generally prefer stories between 1500 and 4000 words, so stories shorter or longer than that will have to rock our world. No non-fiction at this time, please. We will consider other genres (such as speculative fiction, mysteries, sword-and-sorcery, even westerns) as long as it's also erotica. What your story must be, above all, is sexy. And good.

Fiction should be pasted into the body of your email and sent to editor H. L. Shaw at fiction-editor@blowfish.com or fiction-editor@fishnetmag.com. Please include Fiction Sub: (STORY TITLE) in the subject line, replacing (STORY TITLE) with the title of your story. Please send all submissions as *plain text emails*. Do *not* send *any* kind of attachments; those will be rejected unread. Please also make sure that your submission does not contain "curly quotes" or other special characters. A *short* cover letter that mentions the word count of the story enclosed and a couple of any relevant fiction sales is recommended. Please submit one piece per email at a time; no multiple or simultaneous submissions, please.

A word of warning. Your chances of acceptance are greatly increased if your cover letter and submission conform to the standards of good English. Please proofread your work, and use proper punctuation, capitalization, and form proper paragraphs. Any work which does not will almost certainly be rejected. We can tell the difference between errors deliberately inserted for artistic effect and sloppy writing.

We will need a your real name, address, and a US social security number (if you have one) or a complete IRS form, that we can supply, if you don't, before we can pay you. We pay on acceptance. Let us know if you have any questions.


I will note that I inherited a HUGE slush pile already, so for right now this call is going out to journal readers only. As I clear out the backlog, I'll spread the word around a bit more.
