About

186 members set this magazine as a Favorite.

Hexagon Speculative Fiction Magazine is [an] online magazine collecting the work of international writers, visual artists, creators, and mixed media artists. We are looking for speculative fiction pieces that take us on journeys to other worlds or other times, where elements of the fantastic, absurd, horrifying, or humorous might exist. We are drawn to stories that explore distant futures, ancient civilizations, and everything in between. Experimental fiction is welcomed, as long as there are elements of the wondrous, the weird, or the whimsical.
