About Us

MetaStellar is an online publication focusing on horror, fantasy and science fiction, launched in September 2020, founded by a dozen speculative fiction writers, editors and artists from around the world.

In 2020, MetaStellar had more than 15,000 page views, received more than 500 story submissions, and was accredited as a Google News publisher.

As of the end of May 2021, we’ve had over 35,000 page views and published more than 200 pieces by more than 110 writers.

We pay for original speculative fiction, at a rate of 8 cents a word. We also have non-paying publishing opportunities for reprints, essays, how-to articles and reviews.
