SF/F/Horror Short Fiction Reviewers

I was pleased to see that Tor.com has picked up Amal El-Mohtar’s new short fiction review series “Rich and Strange.” The world needs more quality short fiction reviewers like Amal bringing attention to the good stuff.

Of course, Apex Magazine has been running Charlotte Ashley’s short review series Clavis Aurea for 6+ months by this point. I hope you’ve been checking it out.

Below is a list of the websites/bloggers that I know are reviewing short fiction (zines, in particular).

Short Fiction Reviewers:

Clavis Aurea: Apex Magazine – Charlotte Ashley

Rich and Strange: Tor.com – Amal El-Mohtar

Locus Online – Lois Tilton

Tangent Online

Io9.com – K. Tempest Bradford

Short Fiction Spotlight: Tor.com – Brit Mandelo and Niall Alexander

Fantastic Stories of the Imagination: Gillian Daniels

Short Fiction Snapshot: Strange Horizons

I feel like I’m missing a couple. Anybody know?

    Thanks for sharing the list. I would like to read short fiction more regularly (I mean other than just in collections).

        I’ve been aware of Apex for a while. I’m just terrible at keeping up.

        I know how that is.

        We also have a podcast if that’s more your speed.

    Tor.com also publishes occasional short fiction columns by Brit Mandelo and Niall Alexander.

    Strange Horizons has an occasional feature (every other month) that focuses on individual stories.

    And there are a couple more listed in this discussion on Goodreads.
