What is Strange Horizons?Strange Horizons ( www.strangehorizons.com) is a weekly online magazine of and about speculative fiction—science fiction, fantasy, horror, slipstream, and all other flavors of imaginative fiction—and related non-fiction. Since September 2000, we have been publishing new issues every Monday, including fiction, poetry, reviews, essays, and interviews.
Why support Strange Horizons?Because we believe that in the twenty-first century, speculative fiction must be an open, global tradition. For over fifteen years we have showcased work that challenges us and delights us, by new and established writers from diverse backgrounds and with diverse concerns.
Because we have a record of finding and supporting exciting new voices in SF: writers who got their start in Strange Horizons include N. K. Jemisin ("Cloud Dragon Skies," from 2005), Justine Larbalestier (" The Cruel Brother," from 2001), Ken Liu ("The Algorithms for Love," from 2004), Nnedi Okorafor ("The Palm Tree Bandit," from 2000), and John Scalzi ("Alien Animal Encounters," from 2001).
Because we're a multiple Hugo-shortlisted magazine and we've published stories that have been shortlisted for or won Hugo, Nebula, James Tiptree Jr., Theodore Sturgeon, and World Fantasy Awards.
