Do you Ezine? A List of Genre Zines

Recently a press release popped into my inbox for a new online magazine called Dark Fiction, which specializes in audio short stories for portable enjoyment of science fiction, fantasy, and horror.

I thought it would be a handy resource to pull together all those online magazines (whether free readin’ or not) so that we can A) support them and B) go and find lots of lovely fiction and articles to read!

Here is my list—it is far from exhaustive… In the comments it would be awesome if you lovely lot could feedback as to the quality of the magazines listed, and provide links to any that I might have missed.

(All magazine descriptions come from their respective websites.)

Salon Futura
