The Strange Horizons fund drive is upon us!

As most of you know, SH is entirely funded by our family of supporters, either through volunteer work or financial contributions. We have stood as a community magazine since 2000, with a commitment to speculative fiction from around the world, to new authors and wide representation.

To help Strange Horizons move into 2020, we need to raise $13,000. This will bring you more gorgeous fiction like Shalini Srinivasan’s “Road: A Fairytale,” vivid poetry like Millie Ho’s “3D-Printed Brother,” in-depth reviews like Erin Horáková’s take on Gormenghast. You’ll get articles of all sorts, like Elsa Sjunneson-Henry on disability portrayal in “Quiet Spaces and Dark Places,” and Jaymee Goh’s discussion of all of those -punks, not to mention art from folks like Grace P. Fong and Suleiman Gwadah, as well as the 100 African Writers of SFF series, which has just published Part 14 on Lagos.

If you'd like to help us meet those goals, please go to our Kickstarter page and donate.

As the Strange Horizons rocket gains funding fuel, we’ll release bonus content as a reward to all and sundry:

$3,000 – bonus poetry by Mary Alexandra Agner
$4,000 – bonus review by Mazin Saleem
$5,000 – bonus fiction by Ruthanna Emrys
$6,000 – bonus article by Suyi Davies Okungbowa
$7,000 – bonus poem by Deborah Wong
$8,000 – bonus review by Samira Nadkarni
$9,000 – bonus poem by Sarah Gittens
$10,000 – bonus fiction by Marissa Lingen
$11,000 - bonus article by Paul Jessup
$12,000 - bonus poem by Caroline Mao
$13,000 - SH is fully funded! E-books for all donors!

Let’s talk stretch goals. Last year, your funding helped us bring you April’s Nigerian special issue, and our forthcoming Brazilian special issue. In 2017’s fund drive, you helped fund the Southeastern USA special issue, focusing on work by black, indigenous, and/or writers of color. In 2016, stretch goals helped us launch Samovar.

Raising $13,200 will bring you a Strange Horizons special podcast by the Hugo-nominated team behind Be the Serpent.

Raising $14,700 will help us fund a Mexican special issue.

Raising $16,200 will help us fund a special issue featuring climate change.

Raising $20,000 will allow us to raise our pay to 10 cents per word for fiction! Yay!

For nineteen years, Strange Horizons has brought you challenging, beautiful work from new and diverse voices. It is the community’s zine, and always will be. Let’s shine together for another year. Help us by donating today.
