“Breathe” is CultureCult’s first anthology of Science Fiction and marks our initial foray into a genre which consciously attempts at achieving a better understanding of Spacetime for all humanity.

A human being’s first breath after being born is her first conscious struggle for existence and survival.

The question of oxygen and survival is often a primary concern of science fiction, too. It may be the conundrum of surviving the vacuum of space. Or it can be related to the advanced equations of terraformation – the master plan to preserve humanity beyond its natural life cycle on planet earth.

“Breathe” being CultureCult’s first anthology of science fiction, we welcome stories of all themes and sub-genres.


We are accepting TRANSLATED FICTIONS as well. Submission of translated works must be accompanied by a statement declaring that the translator has obtained the author’s permission and their publisher’s, if required.

Simultaneous Submissions are welcome but the author must inform us by e-mail as soon as the submitted piece is accepted elsewhere. Pieces cannot be withdrawn once CultureCult informs the author of its acceptance for publication.

We consider reprints but generally do not publish them unless they are absolutely exceptional.

At present, we are unable to pay our contributors. However, each contributor shall receive a COMPLIMENTARY DIGITAL COPY of the anthology as soon as it publishes.
