About the Drabblecast

The Drabblecast is an award-winning online speculative fiction magazine and podcast that publishes “Strange Stories for Strange Listeners,” often also classified as “Weird Fiction.”

Loosely, this encompasses any and all genres, but largely centers around those of Science Fiction, Fantasy, and Horror.

We’re looking for powerful stories that are simultaneously relatable and a good degree off the beaten path. We’re looking for stories that will work particularly well when read aloud and treated with full cast audio production. We’re looking for submissions that are humorous, bizarre, gross, disturbing, badass, interesting, and original — your favorite story that we both know would be a hit if only it found the right home.

We’ve been expecting you! Please wipe your feet on the various dismembered feet on your way in.
