Sci Phi Journal is a cosy waystation for travellers who, through no fault of their own, find themselves at the cosmic intersection between speculative philosophy, cultural anthropology and hard SF. With previous incarnations of Australian and British origin, the magazine was re-launched as a European project in 2019 under co-editors Ádám Gerencsér and Mariano Martín Rodríguez. In 2022, Sci Phi Journal won the European Hall of Fame Award for Best SF Magazine, and its content has been shortlisted for various other awards, incl. Hugos and Utopias. As its primary mission, the Journal wishes to provide a platform for idea-driven fiction, as opposed to the ‘character-driven’ mode that has come to predominate speculative fiction. We hope that, in the fullness of time, it may also act as a catalyst for discussion among mind-mates scattered around the globe, united in our attraction towards the philosophical edge of the SF spectrum. Our guiding stars and fountainheads of inspiration are the masters of idea-dense literature: Borges and Stapledon, as well as Orwell, Wells and Zamyatin; new-wavers such as Le Guin and Lem, Delaney, Sasarman and Saramago; and visionaries of the more recent generation, among them Chiang, Robinson, Werber, Turner and Liu. Run by volunteers, Sci Phi Journal is open to readers and writers of all persuasions, and adheres to a broad interpretation of freedom of expression.
