Beautifully written science fiction and fantasy.

There's plenty of great bang-up action-SFF out there, and we love that. At the same time, we want more:
  • more style - more writers that use language not just to carry the story, but as a feature in itself.
  • more atmosphere - more stories where the mood of the piece is important, not just ancillary.
  • more character - more stories with characters that act, think, and feel like real people, not heroes.
  • more intellect - more stories that challenge you to think, not just escape.
  • more emotion - more stories that carry you along and make you feel.



Metaphorosis offers all that. However, we do it on a shoestring. Your help will help us keep it going. Keep SFF beautiful!

We'll use your support to keep terrific stories coming out, to pay our writers more for the great stories they offer, and to pay our artists more for the fantastic covers they produce. The more you support us, the more we can pay, and the more the stories will keep on coming. Help us out!

Of course, we rely on altruism, so we've thrown in some goodies to sweeten the pot - most of them available only to Patreon supporters. Check them out below, and sign up as a Patron.
