Edited by bestselling anthologist John Joseph Adams, LIGHTSPEED is a digital 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. When you read LIGHTSPEED, it is our hope that you’ll see where science fiction comes from, where it is now, and where it’s going.
LIGHTSPEED is a 2014 Hugo Award Winner (and a four-time Hugo finalist), and stories from LIGHTSPEED have been nominated for the Hugo Award, the Nebula Award, and the Theodore Sturgeon Award.
Each month, we present a mix of originals and reprints, from a variety of authors—from the bestsellers and award-winners you already know to the best new voices you haven’t heard of yet. LIGHTSPEED also offers a variety of nonfiction features, including feature interviews, Q&As with our authors that go behind-the-scenes of their stories, and more. Plus, as a special bonus for our ebook readers and subscribers, each ebook issue features a novella and novel excerpts not included on our website.
A 12 month subscription to LIGHTSPEED includes 96 stories (about 480,000 words of fiction), plus assorted nonfiction. That's almost 5 regular-sized books worth of fiction!
Kindle Magazines are fully downloaded onto your Kindle so you can read them even when you're not wirelessly connected.
