Zimbell House Publishing is holding open submissions for short science-fiction stories. These tales must pick a side! Your character is either for the Federation, or they are against it.  Stories should include:

  1. Who are involved (planets, races, companies?)
  2. What are the Federation attacking (a competitor, an alien race, an environment?)
  3. Why the Federation is attacking (To protect its interests, peace-keeping mission, obtaining resources?)
  4. Where does the fight take place (Earth, Space, another planet?)
  5. How does the Federation resolve the issue (sanctions, annihilation, colonization?)
