I’m always looking for new places to submit work, and recently I came across Sci Phi Journal in the bowels of Duotrope (which is a beautiful tool to help fledgling authors submit). I thought I’d try for it.
Of course, a lot of science fiction and philosophy go hand in hand. Science fiction often takes a philosophy or concept to an extreme, and it’s this factor of Science Fiction that is most appealing to me. I often wish Fantasy did a little more of this.
Another cool thing about the journal is that they emphasize the philosophical element. They have a ‘food for thought’ section at the end of each story, that teases out the philosophical elements and gives us, well, things to think about. I like this concept.
The site is also well laid out and easy to navigate, so you can check out all different parts of it. You can even get a taste of what you’ll be paying for from the ‘Free Stories’ page.
Sci Phi Journal operates via funding from Patreon, so if you’re interested you can always check it out.
As for me, I’m about to submit. Wish me luck!
