I am planning to write a novel that is set in a solar system where the 1950's tropes are its reality. This means that my story is set on a Venus where lush, fertile jungles cover the majority of the planet. Will publishers still accept the alternative planet despite not being scientifically accurate? It is fiction...

    Why exactly is this of concern? As long as you sell it as Science Fantasy rather than Science Fiction, I doubt anyone would even bat an eye.

Publishers will accept anything that they think people will buy. That is all ye know on earth and all ye need to know.
