Thank you for your continued support!


With advertising revenue falling across the industry, we are relying on the support of our readers to keep the magazine going. With so many visitors to our site each month, if enough people who enjoy our content can donate even a small amount, we can raise enough funds to cover our shortfall, and we will keep putting quality content like reviews, interviews, and articles online and accessible to everyone. If this doesn’t work, we’ll be considering moving content behind a paywall, as many other newspapers and magazine have done. Help us keep all this great content available to everyone!

The Locus Science Fiction Foundation (LSFF) is dedicated to the promotion and preservation of science fiction, fantasy, and horror. Its central activity is the publication of Locus, the Magazine of the Science Fiction & Fantasy Field. LSFF is also responsible for the annual Locus Awards, first presented in 1971, to recognize excellence in science fiction and fantasy literature and the Locus Collection, a large, historical library of speculative fiction materials. The costs of maintaining Locus extend far beyond what our subscription and advertising revenue currently support and your support is essential to our survival!
