Strange Horizons is an online speculative fiction magazine. It also features speculative poetry in every issue.

History and profile[edit]

It was launched in September 2000, and publishes new material (usually some combination of fiction, articles, reviews, columns, poetry, and/or art) 51 weeks of the year. The magazine was founded by writer and editor Mary Anne Mohanraj.[1] It has a staff of approximately fifty volunteers, and is unusual among professional speculative fiction magazines in being funded entirely by donations, holding annual fund drives.

Awards[edit]

Susan Marie Groppi won the World Fantasy Special Award: Non-Professional in 2010 for her work as Editor-in-Chief on Strange Horizons.[2] The magazine itself was a finalist for the Best Website Hugo Award in 2002[3] and 2005,[4] and for the Hugo Award for Best Semiprozine every year from 2013 through 2017.

The short story "The House Beyond Your Sky" by Benjamin Rosenbaum, published in 2006[5] in the magazine, was nominated for a 2007 Hugo Award for Best Short Story.[6] "Selkie Stories Are For Losers" by Sofia Samatar was nominated for a Hugo Award for Best Short Story in 2014. Other stories in Strange Horizons have been nominated for the Nebula and other awards.[7] Three stories published in Strange Horizons have won the Theodore Sturgeon Award.
