Lift Off!

Please excuse the pun, but I think we’re all ready to get started. I hope you enjoy our very first submission, and look forward to seeing many more around here.

For those who are here for the first time: we are open source science fiction. What does that mean exactly? We are taking the philosophy of the “open source” community, and applying it to running and creating a magazine. It’s open to everyone and anyone. Submissions (by everyone) are voted on (by everyone), and so you decide what the top stories are. If you are a writer, this is potentially a great place to get some exposure. We can’t promise much more than your publication, and we’ll advertise as much as we can, but this is a small project and it’s working from the ground up.

I believe that given the opportunity, without the long and drawn out process of sending stories to publishers, etc, so much more material has the opportunity to be shared, critiqued and developed. From this project, who knows, maybe even greater projects will emerge. Time will tell. For now, this is an open platform for the genre of science fiction.

If you’d like to be a regular contributor to our submissions and/or our blogs, feel free to email us: Until then, welcome aboard, please have a look around!
