All submissions will be read anonymously on first read and will move out of slush depending on their merits. Please make sure the title is on the manuscript and page header.
  • Other Submission Info: All stories in Life Beyond Us will be accompanied by science essays; however, these will be written by European Astrobiology Institute scientists. You are welcome to add a note suggesting what the essay should explore, but we are not guaranteed to use it.
