Looking for Periodicals, and an offer.

Those of us standing against Social Justice in SFF have very few current periodicals that are enjoyable. The two that I managed to get in on were SciPhi Journal and Cirsova, and I missed the Kickstarter for issue one of Cirsova(issue two is live now, go help them out).  I missed out on Skelos, and am trying to figure out how to get that one. I know of at least one other periodical that will likely suit my tastes coming up, but I can't find the interview on Castalia House currently.

So, here's the deal: I like short fiction, serialized fiction,  and poetry in SFF. I HATE SJW style work(if you haven't read my book reviews). Send me some information, and I'll go over it. If I get enough, I'll be happy to have a periodicals post ... periodically, and pop up another page with constant links.

Eligibility: Get me a website, a patreon, SOMETHING I can read; if you have a free sample, all the better. I can't throw money at you if I don't know you exist. DeFile will largely scoff at you. Black Gate might give you the time of day respectfully, but you'll be lost amid their sea of information.

I might not have much influence yet, but I am given to believe my influence is growing.  Let me help the cause of good SFF.

Current known actors:

SciPhi Journal

Cirsova Magazine

John C. Wright's Superluminary

Skelos Press

Superversivesf (on occasion)

I know this was a short post, but I believe it to be important.

When you play Social Justice, the world loses.


  1. To Mr. Nick Cole, while I love your writing, you're the wrong type of actor for this. Until you do some serialized fiction, at least.

  2. Ah, you like SFF poetry... congratulations on your good taste. I am a (sometimes) published poet (since 1989) and often write poems with SFF themes. I do usually resist the temptation to post the poems online since most poetry markets consider that previous publication.

    But I did something in a fantasy vein recently that I foolishly shared on my blog, which is linked here:

    Anyway, my friend 'Masha K' shared this blog post with me thinking I would be interested.


  3. Thanks for the shout out!

    " I know of at least one other periodical that will likely suit my tastes coming up, but I can't find the interview on Castalia House currently." Might you have been referring to Compelling Science Fiction and the interview I did with Joe Stetch?

    I really need to get around to reading their first issue; I've downloaded it, but with everything I've had come up, I just hadn't gotten to it yet. I think I saw that they've got the second issue about to come out, too.

  5. Compelling was what I was thinking. Thanks.

  6. Late to the party, but I reccomend checking some of the fiction listed at The best one on there is Worm - a superhero story about a girl that controls insects. It was published in serial format but is now complete.
