Uncanny Magazine Issue 11The Hugo Award-winning Uncanny Magazine is once again recruiting for its Space Unicorn Ranger Corps! We named the Uncanny Kickstarter backers the Space Unicorn Ranger Corps after our amazing Space Unicorn mascot. Now, you can become a member of the Corps by subscribing here at Weightless Books!

This is the perfect time to join because Uncanny is going on sale! From May 2-16, a year’s subscription to Uncanny Magazine is $2 less than the typical current cover price (only $21.88)! It’s the least expensive way to subscribe we offer.

Each bimonthly issue of Uncanny contains new and classic speculative fiction, poetry, essays, art, and interviews. We seek out and share pieces we can’t stop thinking and talking about, because of how they make us feel. We’re also deeply committed to finding and showcasing fantastic works by writers from every possible point of view and background.

We debuted Issue One of Uncanny in November 2014 and we’ve been thrilled with Years One, Two, and Three so far. We’ve included original contributions from phenomenal authors such as Neil GaimanMaria Dahvana HeadleyMax GladstoneKen LiuChristopher BarzakSam J. MillerSofia Samatar, Catherynne M. Valente, Alyssa Wong, Elizabeth Bear, John Chu, Kameron Hurley, Charlie Jane Anders, Ursula Vernon, Javier Grillo-Marxuach, Chris Kluwe, Hao Jingfang, Mary Robinette Kowal, Seanan McGuire, Mark Oshiro, Rachel Swirsky, E. Lily Yu, and Amal El-Mohtar, plus many newer voices.

Uncanny won the Best Semiprozine Hugo Award in 2016, while Hao Jingfang’s story “Folding Beijing” (translated by Ken Liu) won the Best Novelette Hugo Award. This year, Uncanny is once again a Best Semiprozine Hugo finalist along with the Thomases for Best Editor- Short Form. Plus, Uncanny stories by Alyssa Wong (“You’ll Surely Drown Here If You Stay“) and Brooke Bolander (“Our Talons Can Crush Galaxies“) are finalists for both Hugo and Nebula Awards. We can’t wait for you to read what’s coming next!

    Did I automatically get entered into the giveaways when I renewed yesterday or do I have to fill out a form of some sort?
