About

Spaceports & Spidersilk is an online magazine for younger readers (8 to 17 and beyond). Formerly it was called KidVisions. Spaceports & Spidersilk features short stories, poems, and art, as well as brief essays on science and the environment, interviews, quizzes, contests, (and, quite frankly, anything else that is genre-oriented and will help encourage the younger generation to read...and to dream, especially about going to the stars). We at Sam's Dot Publishing hope that younger writers and artists, as well as adults, will submit their work. The genres for Spaceports & Spidersilk include fantasy, science fiction, and a category we are going to define as ‘shadow stories’. Shadow stories are mild horror. If you’ll forgive me for this, we are looking less for blood and gore, and more for snot. Shadow stories should make the younger reader say, “Ewwww! Gross!” Or, to put it another way, we want campfire stories that will allow you to sleep in the tent afterwards. We want spooky, not terrifying.
