For us, speculative fiction involves speculating in some form or another (directly, indirectly, metaphorically, etc) about the human condition in the immediate or distant future. This can be done in many genres under the umbrella of speculative fiction, including, but certainly not limited to, science fiction, fantasy, and *punk.
We prefer stories that use technology over stories that use magic, but welcome stories that cleverly contain both.
We prefer stories that try not to compromise creativity by over-focusing on scientific accuracy.
We prefer stories that rely on characters who interact with technology, rather than technology that interacts with characters. (Of course, some technologies are characters…)
That being said, we are very open and welcome to many interpretations of what “speculative fiction” is, the genre’s diversity being what we love so much about it.
