Space Squid: Weird, Sad, Funny Science Fiction Short Stories & More
Need some free, funny science fiction short stories in your life? You're in the right place. Based in Austin, TX, Space Squid is an award-winning hybrid publication featuring eclectic science fiction short stories, bizarro, errata, culture jamming, puzzles, poetry, and whatever else works. For over a decade, we've known it when we've seen it and we know you will too.
We've been fortunate to publish fiction from Nicky Drayden (The Prey of Gods, Temper), Kelly Luce (Three Scenarios in Which Hana Sasaki Grows a Tail), Bruce Sterling (Mirrorshades, Islands in the Net, Heavy Weather), Chris Roberson (Clockwork Storybook, Superman, iZombie), Jay Lake (John W. Campbell Award winner), Jennifer Pelland (Nebula nominee), Tony Millionaire (Maakies), Caroline M. Yoachim, William Shakespeare, and lots of other ridiculously talented people. We're not sure why they tolerate us.
It's true that we caused a bit of a ruckus when we published a special edition in clay. WIRED blogged about us twice and one of the tablets ended up being inducted into Texas A&M's science fiction collection at Cushing Library. For more information, please see our About Us page.
