SCIENCE FICTION TRAILS
Who we are.
Science Fiction Trails started nearly a decade ago because there simply was nowhere to read western sci fi on a consistent basis. Sure, these stories pop up in anthologies and other fiction magazines, but the experience is erratic. We believe we are the only continuously publishing magazine featuring western science fiction.
In 2010 we started a book line as well, featuring the horror side of the weird western. We've published three anthologies of western horror to date. Our latest book was Gunslingers & Ghost Stoiries.
Whatever flavor of weird western you're looking for, we think you've come to the right place. Saddle up for a wild right through the weird west and order your copy today!
In October of 2013 we released a second fiction magazine--Steampunk Trails. Featuring adventure oriented steampunk stories and nonfiction articles, editor J. A. Campbell has amazed the readers with the inaugural issue.
In our action packed eleventh issue those pesky Martians are in two very different takes on Martian invasion. We go to Name Pending, Wyoming for a story that reminds us perhaps nature can handle evolution better than man. Folks always seem to think they know how to handle alien technology–but they never do and the device the government wants proves to be quite deadly. And a Native American warrior gets a really fast lesson about parallel universes. Join contributors David Boop, Joel Jenkins, John Howard and others in our first Wild West Writing Challenge, where they come up with some amazing and really short gunfights. Featuring stories by Sam Knight, C. J. Killmer, J. A. Campbell, Lyn McConchie, Henrik Ramsager, R. A. Conine and Jackson Kuhl with an article by David Lee Summers.
