Free Radicals Quarterly Free Radicals Magazine Quarterly

Free Radicals Magazine is looking for speculative fiction (with literary twists). We are also looking for speculative nonfiction. At the heart of speculative writing is often an engaging “What if?” question. The numerous speculative fiction sub-genres that meet this need include, but aren’t limited to horror, science fantasy, fantasy, science-fiction, hard science-fiction, social science-fiction, space opera, grimdark fantasy, urban fantasy, cyberpunk/post-cyberpunk, solar/hope punk, etc. For speculative nonfiction, it can be extrapolating current trends to understand the murky future. It could also be counterfactual speculation as to what might have happened if (say) Napoleon died in battle, and exploring the consequences of such an event within the context of historical research, etc. Free Radicals Magazine is also seeking reviews, game design guidance, advice concerning worldbuilding, and so on.

We are looking for submissions to our print/digital quarterly edition of Free Radicals.
