You might find more than you bargained for the next time you buy a magazine.

Speaking of, do you have a sci-fi lover among your family or friends? On Spec subscriptions make a great gift they’ll enjoy all year (but sorry, you’ll still have to get them a birthday present).

When you think of Holiday gifts, think of On Spec

The editors and staff of On Spec are gratified by the show of encouragement from our readers and friends in the months since we learned of our current financial difficulties. The good news is that, for now, we are on an even keel, and we’ve been able to reduce spending and increase savings in a few strategic areas, without sacrificing the quality of our magazine or its contents.

On Spec will continue to publish.

Grants are never assured, and we have been fortunate until now. But grants are not enough. It’s the ongoing support of our readers that keeps us going. So at this time of the year, when you are looking at your holiday shopping list, please consider a gift of a subscription to On Spec for the readers in your family or in your circle of friends.

You can buy a paper subscription, or a digital one, and it really is a gift that continues to give pleasure to everyone who reads it.

Monthly contributions to our Patreon sustainability campaign will always be most welcome.

Congratulations to Tyler Keevil, winner of 2014 Journey Prize!

On Spec loves it when one of its authors gets this kind of recognition. Tyler Keevil has won the $10,000 Journay Prize for his story, “Sealskin”, published in The New Orphic Review.

Tyler’s story, ‘Canine Court’,was published in Volume 24, #2 of On Spec Summer 2012, and his haunting tale,  ‘Masque of the Red Clown’ was in our Spring 2008 issue. If you are interested in seeing “Canine Court”, you can buy a digital version of the issue at Weightless Books.
