Introducing: Unfading Daydream

Unfading Daydream is a literary magazine that strives to feature the genres that inspired us to start writing (science fiction, fantasy, horror, etc.). We want to showcase stories of all types – from romantic, to platonic – and especially ones featuring LGBTQ+ themes. Unfading Daydream will be published on a quarterly basis.

Unfading Daydream is a venture that Adelei Wade and I are taking on. We want to find a way to feature writers – both experienced and inexperienced – who write in the genres we love (sci-fi, fantasy, horror, etc). Genre fiction doesn’t always get the love in the publishing world that literary fiction does…yet there are plenty of amazing stories out there. We want to find those stories.

That’s where you guys come in~

We’re just about to open our first submission period! This means you’d have the opportunity to be published in the first issue of Unfading Daydream.

DESCRIPTION:

In penance for trying to change the status quo, John Stratton is tasked with building a program for training teenaged, enhanced assassins with AIs from the ground up. Project Maestro. His obedience wavers when one of the candidates hits a little too close to home. The fire is back. And this time he is determined to succeed.

Light Morrison accepts the offer from Project Maestro in hopes of finding a challenge. Everything is going well at first – he’s made friends with Aria and Jinto, the curriculum is difficult, and the new environment is doing him wonders. The true nature of Project Maestro is revealed and despite disliking what he’ll do, Light goes along with it. That is until he, Aria, and Jinto discover information that changes everything.

Thanks everyone~

Thanks for all the support!

Happy writing
