Daily Science Fiction


Daily Science Fiction publishes original science fiction and fantasy every weekday, defining "science fiction" in the broad sense of the term, including sci-fi, fantasy, slipstream -- whatever you'd likely find in the science fiction section of your local bookstore. Their stories are mostly short short fiction (flash fiction), the right length to read on a coffee break, over lunch, or as a bedtime tale. Topics are eclectic: you can find everything from aliens to time travel, fairy tales to wizard tales, and read what intrigues you. Visit their website to subscribe via email and receive each story in your inbox every weekday for free.
