2008 Fund Drive

This fund drive has now closed! If you're looking to support Strange Horizons, please see our main donate page.


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. (We also take pride in being the first professional sale for many of our fabulous and innovative contributors!) 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 your help to keep our magazine going. All of our staff members contribute their time and energy for free, but our authors and artists do get paid. We are committed to paying professional rates for high-quality fiction, poetry, art, and nonfiction. In this fund drive, we're hoping to raise $6000, which is about one-third 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 (June 1-June 30) will be entered in a drawing for one of our fantastic fund drive prizes. Along with our fund drive prizes, we've added the blogger incentive prizes and four new drawings to be held after every two-thousand dollars donated. See our blog for more details.

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. This membership card will now be available all year long, however the different gift packages that are available at the different donation levels are only available during the fund drive! See our membership page for full details about the 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 membership to Strange Horizons is tax-deductible!
