Spring 2006 Fund Drive
This fund drive has now closed! If you're looking to support Strange Horizons, please see our main donate page.
We've met our goal! The fund drive has officially concluded successfully. Thank you to all of the donors!
Since its founding in September 2000, Strange Horizons has brought you some of the most exciting and vibrant voices in the genre of speculative fiction. We believe speculative fiction is an important literary genre, and we take pride in our work, and the fact that for many of our diverse and innovative contributors, Strange Horizons is their first sale. We are passionate about publishing cutting edge speculative fiction and art, and hope to be contributing to the genre for many years to come.
To that end, we depend on you, our readers, to keep our magazine going. All of our staff members contribute their time and energy for free, but our contributors do get paid. We are committed to paying professional rates for high-quality fiction, poetry, art, and nonfiction. All we have to do is raise $3000 in this period, which is about one-sixth of our annual budget. We are hoping that you, Dear Reader, will help us reach that goal.
Of course, there is more to be gained by donating than just that warm and fuzzy feeling of knowing you're helping to sustain one of the most exciting publications in the field. Everyone who donates during the fund-drive period (April 1-May 14) will be entered in a drawing for one of our fantastic fund drive prizes. As always, we're happy to take donations of any amount, but if you donate $25 or more, you can become a Strange Horizons reader-member, which entitles you to a glossy illustrated collectible membership card and a discount on the Strange Horizons annual anthologies. (Different gift packages are available at different donation levels—see our membership page for full details about our membership levels.) Becoming a Strange Horizons member costs less than subscribing to most print magazines, and since we're a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, your donation to Strange Horizons is tax-deductible!
