Speculative Fiction & Poetry Recommendations – February 2021

Nature and gods are what defines most of the recommendations from February. Another short story and poem from Apparition Lit’s justice issue are on this list because it’s just that good and although it was technically published in January, the chosen pieces were only made available on their website last month. I also have an anthology to recommend since one of the following pieces is a reprint originally published in it: Octavia’s Brood: Science Fiction Stories from Social Justice Movements edited by adrienne maree brown and Walidah Imarisha, including a foreword by Sheree Renée Thomas, editor of The Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction.


  • “Andromeda” by Stephanie Nina Pitsirilos and Seth Martel
    in Mermaids Monthly #2


  • DreamForge Anvil
    “An online magazine of speculative fiction that is positive and hopeful, while also helping new writers learn their craft.”
  • Classic Monsters Unleashed
    “New Dracula, Frankenstein & Mummy tales by Jonathan Maberry, Ramsey Campbell, Seanan McGuire, Tim Waggoner. Art by Frank Frazetta.”
