Studies in the Fantastic Submissions

About Us

Studies in the Fantastic is a journal devoted to the Speculative, Fantastic, and Weird in literature and other arts. It publishes work from scholars throughout the world and sustains a lively dialogue within an expanding field that includes film, video, games, comics, graphic novels, digital media, and both traditional and innovative literary modes.

Although grounded in literary studies, we are especially interested in articles examining genres and media that have been underrepresented in humanistic scholarship. Subjects may include, but are not limited to weird fiction, science/speculative fiction, fantasy, video games, architecture, science writing, futurism, and technocracy.
