Strange Far Places is a biannual literary magazine committed to showcasing the best short fiction in YA and MG horror. We publish every subgenre, from the slow burn mind-melter to the psychosexual, from splatterpunk to ghost stories. Our goal is to provide a place where horror authors can be dark and scary without fear of censorship. We release issues every February and August, starting in 2016, with monthly story postings from the current issue following the release.
