The Reach is a magazine of slipstream short fiction. We publish short stories with an element of the fantastic or surreal, explore concepts that are visionary, unreliable, odd or metaphysical, and which cross the boundaries between science-fiction, horror and literary fiction – in short, the fiction of strangeness.
What we’re looking for.
We prefer darker pieces, especially those with an element of the surreal or speculative, but are open to anything and like to be surprised. If you have any doubts about whether something is suitable, go ahead and send it anyway.
