Strangelet is a new journal of speculative fiction, accepting fiction, poetry, nonfiction, graphic stories/comics, and artwork. We are working on our debut Issue Zero, set to be released September 2014 in ebook formats (DRM-free, of course) and a limited print run.

We want to showcase works where genre and literature collide. We want pieces that situate the gravity of living amid the high energy of imagination to find compelling, beautiful, universal truths that speak to us—whether from starships, from dragons’ mouths, or from an everyday world tinged with miracles.


Strangelet primarily will publish short fiction and graphic stories, but we will consider exceptional artwork, essays, poetry, and reviews which explore relevant themes. We are looking for works of speculative fiction, including science fiction, fantasy, magical realism, and anything else that takes the reader to new worlds. For more on the submissions process, visit our submit page.


Our inspirations include authors like Ray Bradbury, Philip K. Dick, Madeleine L’Engle, Gabriel Garcia Marquez, Rod Serling, and others who have broken the bounds of genre and literature.
