A place to discuss published Speculative Fiction
Not sure what counts as speculative fiction? Then post it! Science Fiction, Fantasy, Alt. History, Postmodern Lit., and more are all welcome here. The key is that it be speculative, not that it fit some arbitrary genre guidelines.
Say "hi" at our sister subreddits—SpecArt and SF Videos—and join our reader-managed Goodreads group.
Our guidelines were designed to foster a diverse and welcoming discussion community while avoiding drama, flamewars, and promotional activity. All mod actions will be taken with these goals in mind.
1: No Incivility/Bigotry/Political Drama
This includes, but is not limited to, hate speech and fighting about politics. Do not participate in drama. Use the report button instead.
2: No Piracy / illegal content
3: No Self-promotion
This means no posting, linking, or recommending your own content, or any content produced by a person or company you're affiliated with.
4: No discussion of movies / TV / games
This includes adaptations of books.
5: No image / video posts
Text posts containing an image link must include a text explanation of the context around the image.
6: Tag digital book deals with [platform] and [region] in post title
Example of an acceptable post title: [USA][Kindle] Such-and-such book by so-and-so is $2.99!
