Welcome to Asimov’s Science Fiction. Fulfilling a lifelong goal, I started my career with Asimov’s in 1982 believing it was the best magazine on earth. I still do.

Asimov’s Science Fiction Magazine continues to bring together celebrated authors, new talent, and award-winning stories, poems, and articles as it has for over 35 years. The premier literary magazine in the genre, Asimov’s rewards readers with an exciting new trove of adventures in each issue that transport them on journeys examining the human experience across the Universe.

The perfect gathering place to meet the Who’s Who of Asimov’s Science Fiction authors! We feature posts, articles, and podcasts from our writers. Come by frequently – you never know what you’ll discover! 

Our May/June 2022 issue is a well-stocked barrel of novelettes and short stories. It begins with Evan Marcroft’s harrowing tale of a journey across “Coyoteland.” The issue ends with a new Robert Reed Greatship story, “The Necklace of Memory,” which explores time and retribution. Twelve other excellent tales are stuffed between these two thrilling stories.

Kristine Kathryn Rusch spins a delightful tall tale about “Rocket Girls”; Alice Towey investigates “The Lights That No One Else Can See”; R. Garcia y Robertson captivates with the tale of “Silverado”; stop by James Van Pelt’s “Waylost Café,” and unravel the mystery of “The Abacus and the Infinite Vessel” in Vikram Ramakrishnan’s first story for us.

A potpourri of resources both practical and whimsical – from Writer’s Submission Guidelines, the Calendar of Science Fiction events, and Asimov’s editorial archives to News you can use, the Asimov’s Index, Podcasts, and Cartoons.

“Two lawmen lying dead in Coffeyville…”
—Ballad of Little Britches

Quick and the Dead
High Noon, Coffeyville Kansas, 1881

Lisa Dalton and Little Britches sat in a half-empty Coffeyville saloon sipping sarsaparillas, looking enough alike to be twins though they were only second cousins. Small and blond, they wore white Stetsons, plaid shirts, tight jeans, red leather cowgirl boots, and a pair of single action Colts in the gunfighter’s rig, reversed holsters tied down on each hip with pistol butts facing forward so both guns could easily be drawn with either hand.  READ MORE


Destiny Delayed

by Oghenechovwe Donald Ekpeki

Mr. Mukoro was sitting at the front of his verandah at about 5:30 a.m. The faint glint of early dawn revealed the figure passing his frontage. It was Chinedu Okah, and he stopped to greet.

“Bros, how you dey? You’re up early oh.”

“No,” Mr. Mukoro replied. “I’m down late.”

“Working on your research?” READ MORE
