The Brave New World of Spec Fic Magazines: A Primer

Kristel Autencio of BookRiot  has written a really useful guide for readers who want to read SFF short fiction online (note: this includes the daughter genres of fantasy, adventure, and horror).

She talks about excellent publications like Strange Horizons, Apex Magazine, Beneath Ceaseless Skies, Lightspeed, Nightmare Magazine and (the recently beleaguered) Tor.com and recommends several authors and stories found in each. Among them are John Chu, Mary Robinette Kowal, Ken Liu, Usman T. Malik, Nnedi Okorafor, Daniel José Older, Sofia Samatar and Kai Ashante Wilson.

Incidentally she includes three Filipino authors in the primer — Dean Francis Alfar for “L’Aquilone du Estrellas” (in Strange Horizons), myself for “Blessed are the Hungry” )in Apex), and Isabel Yap for “Have You Heard the One About Anamaria Marquez?” (in Nightmare).

Thank you so much for including me Kristel!
