Unstuck is currently on hiatus. We hope to reopen for submissions in early 2016, and to resume publication later that year. Until that time, we will be checking email only irregularly. We will, however, maintain our Twitter and -- less enthusiastically -- our Facebook accounts through the hiatus. (For more information about subscriptions, refunds, and Kickstarter rewards, please check the blog section of this site.)
E-reader editions of the journal will remain available on Amazon.com, BN.com, and other sites, but print editions will not be available for order. (If you have an outstanding unfulfilled print order, please contact us for a refund, which we will send you along with our apologies.)
Unstuck is a nationally distributed literary journal based in Austin, Texas. We emphasize stories, poems, and even essays with elements of the fantastic, the futuristic, the surreal, and the strange. In our pages, you'll find everything from straight-up science fiction and fantasy to domestic realism with a twist of the improbable. Every issue of Unstuck includes a mix of established and emerging writers.
In its first three years of publication, Unstuck has been praised in The New York Times and Poets and Writers and reprinted in Harper's and Electric Literature's Recommended Reading. We've featured new work from writers like Steve Almond, Matt Bell, Aimee Bender, Kate Bernheimer, Arthur Bradford, Kevin Brockmeier, Edward Carey, Matthew Derby, Rikki Ducornet, Amelia Gray, J. Robert Lennon, Jonathan Lethem, Elizabeth McCracken, Joe Meno, Rick Moody, Mary Ruefle, Tomaz Salamun, Patrick Somerville, and Dean Young.
