EDGE Science Fiction and Fantasy Publishing
P.O. Box 1714
Calgary, AB
T2P 2L7

EDGE is currently accepting submission for Tesseracts Twenty-two.  They want short speculative fiction on the theme of Alchemy and Artifacts for issue 22 or this venerable anthology. Canadians only. Pays $50 for stories up to 1,500 words, rising to a maximum of $150 for stories up to 5,000 words. 
Deadline: May 15, 2018. Guidelines here.

EDGE is also currently seeking high-quality novel-length science fiction and fantasy submissions of all types, from both new and established authors. “We are not interested in erotica, strictly religious fiction, short stories (other than submission for a specific anthology), dark/gruesome fantasy, or poetry. Manuscripts should be written in good taste and be aimed at a well-read, mature audience.
Novels should be between 75,000 and 100,000 words.
EDGE occasionally publishes YA speculative fiction; however, any YA submissions must meet all their usual guidelines. In particular, any YA manuscripts must be aimed at a well-read, mature audience, and be between 75,000 and 100,000 words.

They particularly like stories with:
·         depth and insight
·         great writing
·         original ideas
·         interesting characters who have believable behaviors, motives, and relationships
·         believable dialogue
·         strong plots
·         solid science or magic systems
·         unique settings
·         well designed, innovative alien life forms and environments, and
·         richly detailed and original cultures.

To submit, mail them your query and partial manuscript. But read their guidelines carefully first – here.
