The Speculative Edge is a monthly print and digital magazine featuring the best speculative short stories, poetry, movie and book reviews, essays, author interviews, and contests. Published worldwide, a new edition of the Speculative Edge is available on the first of every month, in both print and digital versions, beginning August 1st, 2012.
According to Shane R Collins, Editor in Chief of The Speculative Edge, “In developing The Speculative Edge, I’ve had two goals in mind. First and foremost, I wanted to create a magazine for people who love the science fiction, fantasy, and horror genres. If you like movies, we publish reviews of blockbusters and independent films alike. If you like stories, we publish some of the best short fiction anywhere. If you like poetry, we publish a dozen imaginative poems in each issue. But more importantly, we publish what our readers want. We constantly have polls on our Facebook page to see what our audience is interested in. For instance, we recently learned that The Walking Dead is one of our audience’s favorite TV shows, so in September, we will run an extended preview focusing on the upcoming season.
“My second goal for the magazine was try to bridge the gap between genre and literary writing. There is a lot of animosity between these writers, and I believe it is unnecessary. Our goal is to publish writing that balances plot with character. We strive to publish stories that have fascinating and unique worlds, but also illuminate the human condition.”
The Speculative Edge’s staff understands that readers need literature that they can relate to, literature that they want to read. The Speculative edge cares about their readers’ opinions, so be sure to check them out on Facebook (www.Facebook.com/TheSpeculativeEdge) or on Twitter (www.Twitter.com/SpeculativeEdge) and share your opinion, because they want to hear it!
