Uncanny: A Magazine of Science Fiction & Fantasy

2016& 2017 Hugo Award WINNER, Best Semiprozine

Five-time Hugo Award-winner Lynne M. Thomas (Apex Magazine, Chicks Dig Time Lords, Glitter & Mayhem) and two-time Hugo Award-winner Michael Damian Thomas (Apex Magazine, Queers Dig Time Lords) are seeking support for Uncanny: A Magazine of Science Fiction & Fantasy. Each bimonthly issue of Uncanny contains new and classic speculative fiction, poetry, essays, art, and interviews. Uncanny's monthly podcast includes a story and a poem from each issue and an exclusive interview with one of our creators. 

Space Unicorns are for everyone! All of our content is available on our website for free, with new content released monthly. 

Getting to share these stories, articles, and poems with our community of readers is awesome like a space unicorn (hence our mascot). We refer to our supporters as members of the Space Unicorn Ranger Corps. 

Year Four is  under way, with more fantastic work from writers around the globe. We'd love your help to keep the Space Unicorn Ranger Corps growing. You can support us through Patreon, by subscribing to Uncanny through Weightless Books or Amazon, or by buying single issues through any of the major online booksellers.

Our Philosophy:
The best Science Fiction and Fantasy combines astonishing ideas, strong characterization, gorgeous writing, and distinctive points of view from around the world. We seek out and share stories we can't stop thinking and talking about, because of how they made us feelUncanny aims for the feel of a magazine that's been around since the pulp era, with a 21st century sensibility.

We're deeply committed to finding and showcasing new voices in our genre community from around the world. Fully half our content came in as unsolicited submissions. We plan for that trend to continue, and likely grow. We pay $.08 per word for original fiction, $30 per poem, $50 per essay, and $60 per reprinted artwork, all upon acceptance. In addition to paying our contributors, we have website hosting/maintenance costs, editorial costs, taxes, and podcast production/hosting costs.

Your funding goes to the production of future issues of Uncanny, paying our creators a competitive rate, and exploring more ways to bring you great Science Fiction, Fantasy, and Speculative Literature.
