All Worlds Wayfarer is a quarterly literary magazine specializing in character-and-theme-driven speculative fiction. We celebrate stories that take readers on tours through wonderful and terrifying realms, evocative visions, and eye-opening new lives. When our readers come home, they should return ever so slightly changed for having made the journey. After all, the most powerful stories transcend, enlighten, and entertain at once.
“Books give a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, and life to everything.” -Plato
Our autumnal equinox 2019 issue includes 12 stories spanning the speculative fiction spectrum:
The Lighthouse by Sharon Frame Gay
"She returned to bed before dawn, smelling of the sea, her body slipping next to mine when the sparrows began to sing."
Not Locks but Keys by Michael Walker
"He played the poem over in his mind. In the small, floating part of his mind that still belonged to him."
The Melodic Travels of a Man Selling Lives by Dennis Mombauer
"The countdown began, the shell enveloped Marcus—and all of a sudden, softly and without warning, he heard the music again, the exact same melody, in the exact same moment before the entry into foldspace."
Muzi's Boon by Drema Deòraich
"The sight of villagers crowding her at every Flowering to beg selfish boons turned my stomach."
Players by Astra Crompton
"The itch in my code is excruciating now; a punishment for my disobedience but a price I am willing to pay."
I Wanted You to be Happy by Alexandra Grunberg
"The reason for the end of the world, was me."
A Fitting End by Tom Howard
"It would have been nice to have friends who existed outside of books, her only companions during her battle with DIPG."
The Waves by Lara Alonso Corona
"But you get used to all sorts of things. Like having the Old Town underwater."
Stowaway by John Visclosky
"She knew that Venus was not like Earth. On Venus, there was still work. It was a planet with a future, where even a girl from a dusty village could be whatever she wanted."
Reflections by Hugh McStay
"It was through the mirrors that the nightmares came."
A Cure for Spring by Larina Warnock
"'I wanted…' Carmyne gasped between every word. 'I wanted it to feel like the end of everything.'"
The Linear Concept of Time by C. S. Lytal
"'But maybe they can’t come back to us. Maybe we have to go to them,'” I say, thinking of the tunnel of darkness and stars."
Venture beyond the mundane with the best of fantasy, science fiction, horror, and magical realism.
The best speculative fiction stories end in surprising ways. Here are seventeen stories that not only end well but began in ways as wide ranging and surprising as the best twist endings.
The Outliers are 17 authors who view the fantastic through very different lenses of personal experience and imagination. They are well known and unpublished, they are men and women, they are straight and LGBTQ, they come from seven different nations and several races and distinct cultures. They all bring you stories from outside speculative fiction's mainstream with voices as compelling as any and visions daring and unique.
From forgotten gods to downtrodden superheroes, from visions of imperfect futures to new mythologies for the modern age, these are The Outliers of Speculative Fiction.
A chapbook collecting sixteen stories of weird, speculative, experimental, mysterious, uncanny, and fantastic fiction by Dennis Mombauer, including stories that have never been published before and others that have gone out of print.
The good fortune removalist comes to town. Two visits to the Festival of Dissolution. An expedition of field philosophers advances into a fog-shrouded carnival city. The dust bathynaut jumps into a unfathomable rift. A garbage man finds mechanical marvels in the trash. Castaways and refugees wander through endless cities, talking to scarecrows and stuffed wolves. A visitor knocks on the door to inform about the victim of a future storm. Abandoned waterparks expand into worlds of their own, where entire tribes struggle to find a way home. An office clerks enters the labyrinth of the archives. Whyrwol infests a landscape with legless pups and hidden dream-palaces.
