Strangelet is a journal of speculative fiction, accepting fiction, poetry, nonfiction, graphic stories/comics, and artwork. Our debut, Issue Zero, is out in ebook formats (DRM-free, of course) and a limited print run.
We 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 publishes short fiction and graphic stories, but we also want exceptional artwork, essays, poetry, and reviews that explore the same space. 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, Margaret Atwood, Kelly Link, and others who have broken the bounds of genre and literature. Not to mention artists like Edward Gorey, David Hellman, moebius, and Emily Carroll, who keep us just as transfixed.
