SQ Mag is an international speculative fiction ezine, which publishes the best of its fiction in an annual print and ebook anthology. We currently publish our fiction on a two-monthly basis. Watch out for new editions on the 1st of January, March, May, July, September, and November each year (this will be in the morning of the release day, Australian Eastern Standard/Daylight Saving Time). We strive to present the highest standard fantasy, horror and science fiction, and that is why we will publish no more than nine pieces of fiction each edition, and often less. We are also committed to publishing at least one of each genre.
We don't publish any particular theme or style. We love speculative fiction and we want to present readers with fresh, exciting pieces. We are an adult reader magazine, but we don't publish excessive language, violence and sex.
SQ Mag is an international ezine. We love the English language and the nuances of different idioms. We publish stories in the idiom we receive manuscripts - if a story is written in UK English, we publish in UK English. You will notice that we place a small tag next to each author citation with the flag of the English form. It does not necessarily represent the nationality of the author.
