B Cubed Press wants short sci-fi and fantasy stories for the anthology After the Orange. Stories should be character- or plot-driven and set after 2032, showing the long-term effects of the Trump presidency in or outside the US. The tone may be optimistic or pessimistic, but plots must have clear connections to the news events of 2017. While stories focusing on politics are welcome, so are those that deal with “romance, spooks, robots and evil overlords, satire or parodies.”
