LIGHTSPEED is an online science fiction and fantasy magazine. In its pages, you will find science fiction: from near-future, sociological soft SF, to far-future, star-spanning hard SF--and fantasy: from epic fantasy, sword-and-sorcery, and contemporary urban tales, to magical realism, science-fantasy, and folktales.
We have original science fiction by Bonnie Jo Stufflebeam ("He Came From a Place of Openness and Truth") and Jeremiah Tolbert ("Men of Unborrowed Vision"), along with SF reprints by Theodora Goss ("Beautiful Boys") and Michael Cassutt ("More Adventures on Other Planets").
Plus, we have original fantasy by Sequoia Nagamatsu ("Headwater LLC") and Matthew Hughes ("The Archon," a Kaslo Chronicles tale), and fantasy reprints by Aliette de Bodard ("The Lonely Heart") and Rachel Swirsky and Ann Leckie ("Mother, Maiden, Crone").
We also have a feature interview with David X. Cohen, Executive Producer of the critically-acclaimed animated series Futurama, along with our usual assortment of author and artist spotlights, and the launch our new book review column.
