The editors of Deep Magic are accepting well-written, attention-clutching stories for forthcoming issues in 2017. They are open to all themes and subjects within the sci-fi/f genres, as long as stories are wholesome and free of erotica, foul language, graphic brutality, etc. Some element of magic or ultra-cool technology should play a role in stories.
Deep Magic, originally a monthly sci-fi/f ezine published from 2002 to 2006, was relaunched in June 2016 as a bi-monthly eZine with the same purpose: to encourage and promote clean writing within the genres of science fiction and fantasy.
