Welcome to Space and Time magazine—the oldest continuously published speculative fiction semi-pro in print—since 1966.

The #137 Summer issue is a miracle. Despite the pandemic, the social unrest, the shortages we’ve prevailed. A dozen authors, seventeen poets, and a small army of artists have worked together to bring forth stories that speak of other realities. Many of them echo the current one with eerie accuracy. Speculative fiction brings the unthinkable to the conscious mind and allows us to roleplay the effects of dystopia. In the summer of 2020 as misinformation and fear spreads faster than the COVID-19 virus, these stories are vital. They demonstrate our future… and give us the hope we can survive it.
