Original speculative fiction: horror, fantasy, and science fiction. We want short stories from across the classifications and those dusky places between: magical realism, fantastique, slipstream, interstitial, Weird. We will consider suspense or western, though we prefer it contain some speculative element. We like voices that are full of feeling, from literary to pulpy, with styles unique and flowing, but not too experimental. All labels aside, we want tales that expand genre, that value imagination in character, narrative, and plot. We encourage diverse authors, characters and points of view, inclusive of all races, cultures, genders, and orientations. Please read a few issues before submitting.
