If you love Strange Horizons (and I very much do) then now is the time to show your support by donating a little to their fund drive. Over on their blog they've got a lovely list of reasons why you should support them, including a few nifty prizes for donators... Books! Art! Tarot Readings! Tax relief! (er, what?)
All of which are very good reasons, however the best and foremost one should be this: Strange Horizons is one of the best magazines out there. Not just for the fiction - which, it has to be said, is almost uniformly excellent. On Shiny Shorts we've reviewed Recognizing Gabe: un cuento de hadas by Alberto Yáñez (Jan 2012) and Tornado's Siren by Brooke Bolander (Feb 2012), and not reviewed by still highly recommended are Feed Me the Bones of our Saints (part 1) (part 2) by Alex Dally MacFarlane (July 2012),
Tiger Stripes by Nghi Vo (May 2012), Pataki (Part 1)&(Part 2) by Nisi Shawl (2011),
起狮，行礼 (Rising Lion—The Lion Bows) by Zen Cho (2011),
The Yew’s Embrace by Francesca Forrest (2011) & Last Of The Monsters by Emil Skaftun (2010).
But! Also! Their non-fiction is also brilliant. Always fascinating articles and some extremely juicy in-depth reviews that should not be missed.
Share the love and keep them going strong by donating here!
