How 'bout you advertise in Space Squid? It guarantees that your core audience (sci-fi and humor fans who are careless with their money) will see it, our circ is comparable to many magazines and journals, and it'll probably be the cheapest ad you'll ever buy (starting at $35).
Want to contact us about other crap, like events, performances, or contributing art, jokes, writing, and slave labor? Hit up our contact form.
why buy a sci-fi ad?
We distribute free monthly stories aggressively online and represent at sci-fi events and conventions. We're well-known in the Central Texas convention scene. Current mailing list is almost 2000 readers, all over the world.
As you probably know, the 'zine itself is a "Onion for nerds," which parodies and yet celebrates speculative fiction. Our celeb contributors include Nebula award nominee Jennifer Pelland, Bruce Sterling ("father of cyberpunk"), and Jay Lake (editor of Polyphany and winner of the 2004 Campbell Award). We're weird, we're naughty, and we're sometimes even funny.
Your ad gets you prime position beside the story of the month, a "sponsored by" message and link in the content, and a link on this page. Discounts for bulk purchases.
Past advertisers include:
- The Long Center, Austin's hotspot for the performing arts
- Videogame publisher Gamecock
- Barsuk Records, the record label for Deathcab for Cutie's Transatlanticism and many others
- Cafe Caffeine
- Quack's coffeeshop and bakery
- Misra Records
- Secretly Canadian records
- Authors Derek J. Goodman and Patrice Sarath
We'd be happy to help you build an ad or size it to fit. We like PDF, PSD, AI, EPS, PNG, and JPG formats.
Sometimes we accept payment in trade or store credit.
