*OPEN SUBMISSION ALERT* We’ve got some news!

Hello everyone,

As you have probably noticed our deadline has, in the immortal words of Douglas Adams, whooshed by. This is despite our best efforts as rereading and considering each submission as well as writing handwritten notes to everyone in the last rounds was rather time consuming!

However, we are now down to the last stretch. The end is in sight! (or nigh depending on how you look at it)

The following titles remain on our list under consideration.

  • Collusion
  • To Moor-Ocean Green
  • The Widowers Song
  • Higher Ground
  • Hrimland
  • Porta Coili, the Order of Saint Ceclina
  • Bent
  • Torn
  • A Mars Cat and his Boy
  • Kismet
  • To End All Wars
  • The Blue Magus
  • Strawberry Girl
  • Mind The Gap
  • A Man Repeated
  • Rough Diamond
  • Timepump
  • The Crow Knight
  • The Sorrow Eaters
  • State of the Mind
  • The Golden Virginian
  • The Company of Birds


If your book is here, it means we are still considering whether or not to call in a full.

We’ve already started calling in full manuscripts and haven’t listed those here as we’re contacting them separately.

Anyone not on here should have received a response, and if not, then with our deepest apologies we have to assume it was either lost in the mail or were some of the few in the beginning that did not receive notes. We would kindly request that you do not email querying your manuscript if it is not on this list.

If it is, then congratulations! Thank you for being so patient. We will try and get back to everyone with either a note turning it down or a request for a full in the next month or two.

All the best,

Team Gollancz
