So what is this site, anyway?
To most visitors, Transference is an online 'zine focusing on science fiction
and fantasy (collectively known as speculative fiction).
Each issue (we'll try to release one every two months) carries several fresh new
short stories, as well as
non-fiction in the form of book reviews, editorials,
and tutorials. You can browse the latest issue from the
or view everything we have to offer from the fiction
and non-fiction sections.
There's more on this site than appears in the issues: Each writer
in Transference has an Oeuvre, which contains articles that couldn't be included in

Our discussion board caters to those who enjoy sci-fi
and fantasy, on both sides of the pen. In these fora, you can debate favourite books, receive
advice and criticism on your latest prose, get embroiled in heated metaphysical argument, and
much else besides.
That's all you need to know to start reading the barrelful of writing on this site. Go ahead and
browse the current issue.
Transference.org has a lot more going on that that, however: there's a [insert cool living-thing
metaphor here] of activity going on beneath the skin, unseen by regular readers. Transference is
more than just a gallery where a bunch of strangers hang their work -- it is a tightly-knit
community of writers, reviewers and editors; symbiants who make each issue of the 'zine the
best it can be (and have a whole lot of fun doing it). If you want to know more, if you
want to be a part of it, and if you have a passion for science fiction and fantasy, read on!
Both cruise and Eldritch
are your contacts for writer, reviewer or editor-ship within Transference. Send them examples of
your work, or post your stories in our writing
class forum. If we like what we read, you will be added to our growing roster of members.
