A New Grammar for Science Fiction

Science Fiction is no longer a novelty.

We do not want to read Science Fiction because it is set in the future. Science Fiction must offer some deeper, truer view of ourselves and our place in the cosmos.


Promises, Promises

We know. We're super late. We hope you forgive us. The last few details needed to see Issue 2 off on its course into your hearts and homes have been agonizingly slow for weird and, in all likelihood, non-repeatable reasons. But it really does exist, and it has great stuff in it. 

Like I said before (but moreso now), the good news is that Issue 3 is well underway. In fact, I am pleased to announce some of our stellar contributors! Issue 3 will feature fiction by:

Mike Buckley's work has appeared in The Best American Non-Required Reading 2003, numerous times in the Alaska Quarterly Review, and in The Southern California Review, among many others. He has been twice nominated for The Pushcart Prize in Fiction and his debut collection of short stories,Miniature Men (2010) was nominated for the PEN/Faulkner Award for New Fiction.

John Biggs is a Southwestern U.S. regional writer with about twenty published short stories. He won  grand prize in annual Writers Digest competition in 2011, and in 2012 he won the Creme de la Creme Award at the Oklahoma Writers Federation Inc. conference, People's Choice Award from the Storyteller magazine and was a finalist for the St. Lawrence Book Award. His first novel, OWL Dreams is under contract with Pen-L Publishing and will be coming out later this year.

Carl Fuerst is an outstanding fiction-writer and editor whose projects include the outstanding weird-fiction publication The Again. More details on Carl later...

Lastly for now, a great piece of flash fiction by Ian Kappos, whose fiction has appeared or is forthcoming in Specious SpeciesNeonCrossed Out Magazine, and Grim Corps Magazine. More on him later, too.

Plus: ParaRiffs - Futurama!

We hope we've piqued your interest. Stay tuned!
