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.
