Fantastic Stories of the Imagination
has been publishing original and reprinted science fiction & fantasy as well as reviews and commentary of interest to the genre fiction community for three years.

The free webzine features material by established authors and up-and-coming talent. An ebook version of the magazine is available in all major file formats, and yearly omnibus anthologies are available in digital and print editions.

Fantastic Stories is edited by the industry veteran Warren Lapine who has been nominated for the Hugo, World Fantasy, and Chesley Awards. Over the last twenty-five years he has published many iconic magazines including Weird Tales, Realms of Fantasy, Science Fiction Chronicle, and Fantastic Stories of the Imagination.

FSI's high word rates and paid staff mean we need community support to continue to publish the magazine while we grow our readership and make other revenue models viable.

Your Patreon support will keep the magazine going. We'll put your money in the pockets of content creators, writers and artists who we know have an eager audience.

Why should I pay for something that's free?

Because you think the work we do is worth it. We want to keep publishing new fiction, reviews and commentary that makes a difference in the genre. So check out the perks. Read the issue before anyone else can. Get the podcasts of the original stories before they’re available for sale.

We care deeply about this work and the new and diverse voices that are remaking genre fiction for a new generation. We want to pay our creators and the staff for the hard work they do.

Thank you for joining and becoming part of our team. Because the best is yet to come. And we're eager to find it for you.
