The Future is Forever

I’ve gone and launched another magazine. Forever Magazine is an all reprint market that features a novella and two short stories in each issue. Unlike Clarkesworld, Forever is positioned squarely as a science fiction magazine and is not available for free. Like Clarkesworld, it will be available for subscription (Amazon, Weightless, and Direct) and as standalone issues from Amazon, Apple, B&N, and Kobo.

Why? Well, I explain some of that in the editorial, but what it comes down to is I see it as an opportunity to publish more novellas and to stretch my wings as an editor. I’ve had this idea bouncing around in my head for a while, but it didn’t become practical until I was given the ability to add it to Amazon’s subscription program.

How it grows and what direction it goes depends on your response. The first goal is to cover the expenses. After that, we’ll see. I’m not ruling out adding original stories or novellas to the mix, but that has a cost that the magazine must first grow to cover.

So you can get a taste, I’m making the first issue available for free (epub, mobi/Kindle). You can always purchase it online if you like, or even get the first issue as part of the free thirty-day trial of your Amazon subscription.

The first issue features:

  • The Regular by Ken Liu (novella)
  • The Fate of Mice by Susan Palwick (short story)
  • Firebrand by Peter Watts (short story)

and Ron Guyatt is our featured artist for at least the next six issues.
