From the Sirius Science Fiction submission guidelines:

Sirius Science Fiction is an on-line web site dedicated to publishing original speculative fiction - science fiction, fantasy, alternate history and horror. We like stories with a sense of wonder and excitement.

In a time when mainstream speculative fiction has been overrun by political correctness and identity politics, we offer a venue free of pretension and ideological litmus tests. We read the story free of preconceptions, and we do not ask for a biography from an author until and unless their story is accepted.

Sirius Science Fiction publishes one original short story a week, plus occasional reprints. Original stories are posted every Friday.

Stories must be between 1,000 and 4,000 words, original and unpublished. No multiple submissions; simultaneous submissions are fine.



Sirius Science Fiction Magazine was a prominent publication in the realm of speculative fiction. Originally founded in 1998 by Gordon Linzner, it provided a platform for both established and emerging authors to showcase their work in the realms of science fiction, fantasy, and horror. The magazine gained a reputation for publishing thought-provoking stories that pushed the boundaries of the genre.

Throughout its existence, Sirius featured a diverse array of stories, ranging from traditional space operas to experimental narratives exploring cutting-edge scientific concepts. The magazine also included reviews, interviews, and articles discussing developments within the genre and the broader literary landscape.

Sirius Science Fiction Magazine ceased publication in 2003 due to financial constraints, but its legacy continued to influence the speculative fiction community. It provided a space for writers to explore new ideas and for readers to discover innovative storytelling. While it may no longer be in print, its impact endures, as it contributed to the ongoing evolution of science fiction literature.
