StoryHack Action & Adventure is a modern short fiction magazine in the tradition of the great pulps of yesteryear. It celebrates pulse-pounding fiction that is fun to read and welcomes works from a variety of genres.
I appreciate all the support that pulp fans across the internet have given me, and there is plenty in each issue to attract more mainstream genre readers. It’s easy to see how hungry people are for this type of fiction.
What to Expect
The primary requirement for stories to appear in StoryHack is fun. StoryHack craves exciting stories, regardless of genre, full of action and adventure, just like it says on the cover. StoryHack is obviously heavily influenced by the great pulps of yesteryear, and you’ll see that influence in the covers, the stories, the interior art, even the size and layout.
And when I say a variety of genres, I mean it, here’s a partial list of the genres represented by stories in StoryHack: Modern Action Thriller, Sword & Sorcery, Planetary Adventure, Space Opera, Military SciFi, Weird Western, Fantasy Heist, SciFi Horror, Superhero Adventure, Action Horror, Urban Fantasy, Historical Adventure, and more I can’t think of just now.
Just Try It. The First One’s Free
I funded and produced Issue 0 to use as a selling tool and a proof I have what it takes to edit and publish a magazine worth reading. A ton of great authors showed their support and submitted stories. The end result was a magazine that’s a ton of fun to read. You can also get a free copy of the ebook versions (epub, mobi, pdf) by signing up for the newsletter here.
