Strange Constellations is a short fiction magazine, printing science fiction, fantasy, and other speculative fiction under a Creative Commons license (CC-BY-NC 4.0). That means you’re free to copy it, remix it, or distribute it in any way you’d like, so long as it’s not being used for a primarily commercial purpose. We believe stories belong as much to the reader as they do to the writer.
So here’s what we do. We release one short story a month here on the website. Every now and then we collect them into electronic and print anthologies. Stay tuned in the coming months for the release of Volume One!
Strange Constellations was partially inspired by the 2009 anthology Thoughtcrime Experiments, without whose helpful advice we would probably not have gotten off the ground. The anthology is worth a read if you like speculative fiction, and their advice is interesting to read if you want a candid look at what goes into editing an anthology (albeit one with a higher budget than our little zine).
The editor-in-chief at Strange Constellations is R.S. Mason. If you’d like to know more, you can email him at rmason AT asterismpress DOT com.
