The purpose of this page is to concisely list webzines of a certain type to let people know what’s out there (and to provide easy access to them for myself and others). See below for sources and criteria.
- Abyss & Apex
- Crimson Streets
- The Dark (semipro)
- Electric Spec
- GigaNotoSaurus (token – special niche of long web fiction)
- Heroic Fantasy Quarterly (semipro)
- James Gunn’s Ad Astra
- Mythic Delirium
- Pedestal Magazine
- Perihelion Science Fiction
- Shimmer (semipro)
- The Sockdolager
- SQ Mag
- Three-Lobed Burning Eye
Definitions and Explanation of Listing Criteria
This page defines a webzine as an active magazine listed by the SFWA and/or Ralan which is presented on a website and has no obstructions to reading and reviewing the fiction on its webpages. (Some otherwise qualifying webzines are not listed due to judgment calls regarding the zines’ having a scope even narrower than science fiction, fantasy, and/or horror due to generic, regional, or other limiting criteria.) These webzines are divided into “pro” and “other” groups. If a zine appears as an SFWA-qualifying market or in Ralan’s Pro Markets, then it’s a Pro Zine (and if I can’t find it listed by both, that’s noted). If it appears in Ralan’s Semipro, Pay, or Token Markets then it is an Other Zine (and is a “Pay” zine unless otherwise noted).
Within the above criteria, I try to list all pro, semi-pro, and pay zines. (If you feel one is missing, contact me.) Token markets need a special reason to be listed (such as GigaNotoSaurus being an exception to the above “narrower scope” clause in the service of longer short fiction).
