Space Fantasy Magazine

We’re a new, pro-rate online magazine dedicated to showcasing the best in space fantasy flash fiction. Give us your living planets, stardust-peddling witches, and quantum ghosts.

We want stories that challenge our relationship with space—past, present, and future. Get fuckin’ wild. Show us new mythologies and undiscovered gods. Show us what emerges from a black hole when its egg finally cracks. Show us the place where science becomes magic.

Your characters don’t need to be human, but there should be something undeniably human in their story. We want social outcasts and lovable bastards. We want courageous optimism in the face of despair. We love dark fiction and elements of horror, but there should be a glimmer of hope in it all.
