Who We Are

sub-Q is an interactive magazine for interactive fiction.

Our Mission

We seek to promote all forms of interactive fiction (IF) by

    1. Increasing the visibility of IF
    2. Growing the market for short- and long-form works
    3. Supporting the development of open platforms
    4. Compensating content creators

We are always happy to see work from creators of color, from the QUILTBAG community, with disabilities, or from any other group. Intersectionality welcome. Internationality welcome.

Our Content

sub-Q releases a work of interactive fiction on the third Tuesday of every month.

We publish original and reprint interactive works of science fiction, fantasy, horror, weird tales, magic realism, and mash-ups.

We want smart, fun, and unexpected. Send us your stuff!

Our Business Model

Like a public podcast, we rely on sponsorships and member support. You can also subscribe to our Patreon.

Our survival depends on you!
