Winter 2019 update


Thanks to all who have submitted stories so far. January marks the anniversary of our launch, and the stories keep getting better and better. Mark your calendars for our January 31 deadline in case you haven’t gotten your story in yet. We are looking at a mid-February publication date, depending on the volume of entries our editorial staff is reading through.

As always, cheers from us at RIS.

News on Fall 2018 Submissions


Thank you to everyone who submitted to our Fall 2018 collection. Due to the high volume of stories, we are still avidly reading and assessing the submitted works. Rest assured we are doing our best and thoroughly enjoying these far-out tales!

Checking In


Hello, all. I  have noticed things have been a little quiet here, but rest assured I and the rest of the team have been reading all current submissions for the Summer 2018 selection. The response to our call for science fiction tales has been truly humbling. Thank you all for your continued support toward Ripples in Space. Without your hard work and creative strings of words, this corner of cyberspace would be quite uneventful. From all of us here at RIS, thank you and, above all else, keep exercising your craft.

Cheers from the void,

John Davis – RIS Editor

From across the stars,

Ripples In Space team



Thank you all for your many submissions to Ripples In Space. We are very excited to be publishing our inaugural collection of short stories dealing with all things otherworldly. We are currently working through the submissions and, once the submission period has come to a close, will do our best to get the selected stories up on the site in a timely manner.

-Best from the team that has their eyes to the stars.

Ripples In Space Is Live and Accepting Submissions!


This is my first post on the now-live Ripples In Space website. I am very excited for what the year holds ahead. It is my greatest hope that this site becomes a repository of other-worldly and original science fiction stories. I have already published a few stories on the site, so if you haven’t yet done so, be sure to check those out. Thanks for stopping by.

Staying Creative in the Void,

John Davis
