First launched in the summer of 2010, STUPEFYING STORIES set out to be the direct-to-eBook anthology series that would “shatter the genre barriers,” but ended up evolving into a fairly straightforward science fiction and fantasy magazine. STUPEFYING STORIES has had its ups and downs, and due to external factors was on hiatus for most of 2013, but returns to a regular release schedule beginning in February 2014.
While not a self-consciously “retro” magazine, STUPEFYING STORIES seeks to recapture the pure excitement of the classic pulps by publishing entertaining stories with strong plots and engaging characters. As one reviewer put it:
“You can’t beat SS for old-time SF and Fantasy. All the stories here are clever, lean, and story-driven. Don’t come here if you’re looking for angsty anti heroes pondering mysteries of the universe.”
