About Us

Welcome to Shimmer Magazine!

Our first issue was released in the fall of 2005. Our last issue was released in the fall of 2018.  Our stories have been reprinted in Best American Fantasy 3 and Rich Horton’s Year’s Best Fantasy and Science Fiction, and others.

Dee Warrick’s  “Me, Waiting for Me, Hoping for Something More” was on the 2018 Tiptree Honors list. Fran Wilde’s “Only Their Shining Beauty Was Left” was on the 2017 WSFA Small Press Award ballot.

What made us start a magazine? Honestly? It seemed like fun, and we were too naive to know any better.  Luckily, despite the challenges, it’s was an amazing ride. In 2019, Shimmer Magazine was a Hugo Award finalist, and though we did not win, we thank you all so much for that honor.

Thank you for taking this ride with us. Thank you for being shimmery.
