Unidentified Funny Objects is an annual anthology of humorous SF, and they’re reading for volume 5:
WHAT WE WANT
We’re looking for speculative stories with a strong humor element. Think Resnick and Sheckley, Fredric Brown and Douglas Adams. We welcome quality flash fiction and non-traditional narratives. Take chances, try something new, just make sure that your story is funny.
Puns and stories that are little more than vehicles for delivering a punch line at the end aren’t likely to win us over. The best way to learn what we like in general is to read a previous volume. You can buy it here and also read the online stories for free.
WHAT WE DON’T WANT
These are the tropes we see entirely too much of in the slush pile. You will improve your odds if you steer clear of these:
* Deals with the Devil / Djinn in a bottle variants
* Stereotypical aliens probing people, abducting cattle, and doing other stereotypical alien things.
They’re paying 7c USD per word, for speculative work from 500-5000 words. Excellent opportunity if you have some humor spec-fic lying around, or about to finish something (Since April 30 isn’t far away now)
