About

Absolute Magnitude is a full-sized, quarterly science fiction magazine. We do not use fantasy, horror, satire, or funny science fiction; while we will not reject the following out of hand, they are almost impossible to sell to us: present tense, police procedural, time travel, clones, alternate history, or stories with religious overtones. We’re looking for character-driven action/adventure based technical Science Fiction stories.
