High Tower Magazine

Genre: We will consider any genre so long as your story is superversive, however keep in mind that the editors are experienced horror, fantasy, and sci-fi authors.

We are looking for superversive fiction. Superversive fiction is the opposite of subversive fiction. It is inspiring fiction that builds up civilization rather than tears down. Note that this does not necessarily require a happy ending. For more details, see our about page.
