About

Based in Ottawa, Canada, Kasma SF is a completely free online magazine featuring quality science fiction from some of the genre's brightest new voices. We are looking for short science fiction. Ideally, stories sent to us should be intelligent, with well thought out plots and characters. Beyond this, exactly what happens in your world with your characters is up to you. We enjoy a broad range and don't want to stifle author creativity by having elaborate expectations. Often enough, the best stories come as a surprise. Though Kasma is a science fiction publication, we have been known to (rarely) make an exception and wander into other genres (e.g. fantasy).
