Attention science fiction fans, Nonlocal Science Fiction is approaching critical mass and your support is needed to help it take off!
What is Nonlocal Science Fiction?
It’s a quarterly digital magazine published by 33rd Street Digital Press (a new independent publishing company) featuring short stories and serials from emerging science fiction authors from around the world–this world;) The first issue launches on March 14th!
What makes it so unique?
Nonlocal partners with its authors directly and offers them a share of the profits from the sale of the magazine rather than a per-word rate. Also, authors are involved in the marketing campaign which helps independent authors increase sales.

- Valery Amborski (“Us and Everybody Else”)
- Robert Paul Blumenstein (“Delivery to Venus”)
- Dan Colton (A Thin Atmosphere, Chapter 1)

Miners heading for the promised platinum out west just stopping for some drugs at the saloon. Damn herd of elephants ran right through the streets once. Really tore up the place. Your big city journalist seeking the “truth of the Amerigan frontier,” like a profundity misplaced.
Some people stayed for one reason or none, for one duration or another. The photographer, Mizzer Benjumin Roze, had been present a month, but not many people could afford his family portraits.
