Shimmer publishes short fiction several times a year, in both print and electronic versions. Shimmery stories are most often contemporary fantasy, frequently dark or darkly funny, and always gorgeous. Our tenth issue is available for free download on our site, and is a great example of our work.
Awards and Recognition:
Numerous honorable mentions in the Datlow/Link/Grant Year’s Best Fantasy and Horror; Angela Slatter’s short stories have been an Aurealis finalist twice.
Other Items of Interest:
Our first themed issue was the pirate issue, guest edited by John Joseph Adams; this summer we’ll release our second, the Clockwork Jungle Book, co-edited by George Mann of Solaris Books, a collection of clockwork animal parables.
