Strange Horizons Fund-Raising Drive

Posted on: September 20th, 2013 by Shannon Fay No Comments

Strange Horizons is hosting its annual fund raising drive, and seeing as I just got paid I donated $10 bucks to the pot. If you want to get the warm fuzziess that come from helping out a free, fantastic fiction magazine of great caliber and (momentarily) feeling good about yourself and the state of the world, then please consider donating (if you want to take it to the next level and berate me for not giving more, feel free to donate a larger amount).

SH publishes a lot of great stories, but as far as recent ones go I really enjoyed ‘Din Ba Din’ by Kate MacLeod and A Plant (Whose Name is Destroyed) by Seth Dickinson.

Strange Horizons also publishes a boatload of insightful reviews. I read reviews of books I have no intention of reading just because I’ve learned so much about writing from the SH reviewers. For example, Abigail Nussbaum’s review of ‘The Golem and the Jinni‘ poses the question of what the novel gains by being fantastic, a question I often struggle with in my own writing.

Writing this post makes me realize again what a great resource Strange Horizons is. Now I really do feel cheap.
