What is this website? It is a quarterly online magazine (also known as an e-zine) devoted to genre fiction. We have begun working on our first issue and hope to have it ready for release in January of 2013.
What is Genre Fiction? In short Genre Fiction is nothing more than a broad category that book retailers use to classify Science-Fiction, Horror and Fantay fiction. It is also refered to as Speculative Fiction because all three arenas deal with matters of "What If?" The categories of Science-Fiction, Horror and Fantasy were created by the publishing industry, who knew that book store owners could not possibly read every book in their store, to help identify and collect similar fiction together. In recent years, there has been a merging of influences and it is not uncommon to see sci-fi horror or dark, fantasy fiction. This has meant that the broad classifications of Horror, Science-fiction and Fantasy have also become merged. The resulting blend is refered to as Genre or Speculative fiction.
Who runs the E-zine? The E-zine is run by the staff at Fever Dreams Publications. Peter Bennett is the editor and founder of Fever Dreams Publications and the Fever Dreams E-Zine. There are a number of others who have graciously donated their time and effort to ensure that the magazine runs to schedule and is produced to the highest standard possible.
The main goal of Fever Dreams E-zine is to publish free quality genre fiction - we work with writers to help them produce work that is every bit as good as print anthologies. We hope to be able to say in years to come that famous writers got their break in our pages. We accept submissions from first-time writers, as well as requests for re-prints by experienced pros, and give every submission the chance it deserves to make it into print. The magazine features only one re-print per issue because we don't want experienced writers eclipsing developing talent. One of the main ideas behind Fever Dreams E-zine is to find and support writers and as such we rarely flat out refuse to publish a story. Our editor does his best to provide feedback for all submissions that we feel require additional work and encourages re-submission at a later date. We consider the Fever Dreams E-zine to be a launching point for writers and work hard to get them off to the best start.
Enjoy the Fever Dreams E-Zine and don't forget to tell your friends!
