What is this thing called Strange Horizons?

After the past couple entries, I suspect some of you are thinking "Well, that's all well and good, but I've never read Strange Horizons, so I can't really comment on it."

Luckily, that can be fixed, because the magazine is freely readable online. Make this the week that you stop by and check it out!

For example, you could start with the story that's received the most buzz in recent weeks: Leonard Richardson's "Let Us Now Praise Awesome Dinosaurs," featuring dinosaurs! from Mars! and monster truck rallies!

Or if you're in a more contemplative mood, you could immerse yourself in Helen Keeble's alternate-Victorian mermaid story from a couple months ago: "A Journal of Certain Events of Scientific Interest [...]," the full title of which is too long for me to quote here.

We also publish reprints now and then; a few months back, we got to reprint one of my all-time favorite stories, Theodore Sturgeon's "The Man Who Lost the Sea."

And that's just a small sampling of our fiction from recent months. If none of those sound appealing, browse through our fiction archives.

Or maybe you're not so into fiction. We publish three reviews each week: movie reviews (like David Schwartz's review of Moon), book reviews (such as Gwyneth Jones's review of Daniel Abraham's Long Price Quartet), TV reviews (David Hines recently reviewed season 2 of Sarah Connor Chronicles), and even occasional comic and video game reviews.

And then there's the poetry, like Sonya Taaffe's recent Frankenstein-related poem "The Chymical Marriage." And the articles, from an interview with David Weber to speculation about dinosaurs to statistical analysis of a notable-books list. And columns. And so on.

So if you haven't read Strange Horizons, or haven't done so recently, come take a look!
