This is Storytime blog hop’s fourth year featuring speculative fiction shorts 500 to 1000 word stories from authors all over the globe. Come read and join us. The hop occurs four times a year on the last Wednesday of the month. You can read more about this in Rules & Guidelines, link above.
We currently have an ongoing open call to all speculative fiction authors each blog hop. Story links always due on the 20th of the month of the hop. Note there are some exceptions due to the way calendar dates fall.
You post your story on your blog and send the link to the current host, which you will find listed in the Rules & Guidelines with email information. If not stated or not sure just send it to me and I will get it to the right person.
The theme is always optional unless stated required, e.g. Equal Rights-Freedom themes in January, April Fool for April, 4th of July in July, and Halloween in October.
