List of Professional SF/F/H Magazines

The following is a categorized list of all SFWA-qualifying “magazines and short fiction venues.” The categories are accurate to the best of my knowledge but I welcome corrections. The periodicals I currently cover have links to the magazine’s website and to the relevant recommendations/reviews on this site. Unless otherwise noted, the coverage of the webzines begins in 2017 and the regular coverage of the others begins in 2018.

General SF/F/H Magazines

Monthly (or so)

Print Zines


  • Orson Scott Card’s InterGalactic Medicine Show


Weekly (or so)

Since December 2017, all the zines in this section have been covered in “Weekly Webzine Wrap-Ups.” The “Recs” links bring up recommendations prior to December 2017, though they also bring up recommendations from the Wrap-Ups, links to Tangent reviews, etc.

(From April 2018 (retroactively from January) I’ll also cover Slate‘s pro-paying “Future Tense Fiction” which will produce a story a month for at least this year.)



Other Magazines

  • Dark Discoveries [defunct]

  • 2017-12-01: Page created.
  • 2018-04-19: After an unrecorded period, I added this ChangeLog. Previously the covered zines were split into Print-/E-/Web-zines and the latter were split into Monthly/Weekly. Now all are split into Monthly/Weekly and then into Print-/E-/Web-zines. Updated and clarified “weekly” zine coverage. Added Slate/Future Tense Fiction note. Corrected wrong header levels. Italicized magazine titles within lists.
  • 2018-04-29: Moved Lightspeed and Nightmare from weekly to monthly.
  • 2018-08-29: Moved the defunct Grievous Angel from Weekly/Webzines to Other/Misc.
  • 2018-09-05: Moved Cicada from Children’s Magazines to Other/Misc (defunct). Thanks to Black Gate for the info.
