Editorial Reviews

eFiction presents fantastic short stories every month. It is not a literary journal. It is a magazine that aims to deliver the best shorts from around the world.

eFiction publishes fiction with a beating heart, fresh from the creative minds of its contributors. While the ink is still drying, stories are pitted against each other in gladiatorial combat for the chance to reach you. Only the best stories make it into the issue.

Our stories reflect the world around us, because sometimes fiction can be more true that fact. Expect Romance stories in February, scary stories around Halloween, family-themed stories during the Holidays, and other interesting themes throughout the year.

5.0 out of 5 stars A pleasant discovery May 1, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
I discovered eFiction while browsing arts & entertainment magazines available on my new Kindle. Since each came with a 14-day free trial, I tried out a bunch of them.

Two magazines that have been published for decades surprised me by having a number of lame stories, while eFiction surprised me by ONLY having a couple of lame stories. eFiction's content was on par with some of the best genre mags available, and when I learned that its content is currently all by unpaid writers, developed and polished by volunteer readers and editors, I thought to myself, "Here is a new thing under the sun."

I also kept my subscription. I love good short stories and this has plenty of them. I'm happy to pay $3 or so per issue for the long-established fantasy and science fiction magazines, but I feel even better about the $1.99 for eFiction because I'm supporting something innovative that's interesting in and of itself. The very process by which so much excellent writing emerges from the independent publishing world is fascinating to behold. The community shares news of rising authors and good stories and acts as a new machine to thresh out the chaff and present the reading public with superior work.

I hesitated slightly before choosing how many stars to rank this magazine. Did it deserve five stars? It isn't the absolute best magazine out there, not quite up to snuff with others I'd give five stars. But as my cursor floated over the fourth star a little window popped up saying "I like it." Well, that wasn't strong enough. Over the fifth star the popup said "I love it."

And I do love it. I skip the unrhymed poetry, but the stories and the book reviews are mostly excellent and I even love reading the author bios.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Short Reads April 25, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
As the last reviewer, I also have been publish in eFiction (book reviews only).

I found eFiction through another website, and decided to check it out. I downloaded a few past issues, and found that the stories that I read were compelling to read and well thought out. I can see many of the authors that have been published and featured in eFiction going the distance in the world of indie publishing.

April's issue was the first I was published in, and the first with book reviews. It also had a story that I absolutely loved called "Boob Job". It was not about what I thought it would be, and I was pleasantly surprised when I began reading this piece. I also really enjoyed "Four Ways to Uncover a Time Traveler".

The thing that really brought me to eFiction was the diversity in the stories. They publish all genres, styles, and stages of writing, but they strive for excellence in their magazine and content. I can't wait to see what eFiction has in store for us in the months to come.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not great, but not bad for the price October 1, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
This magazine has a mixture of serial stories, short stories, poetry and book reviews. In the issue I read (September 2011) a couple of serials started (The Dead Beat, The Bike Mechanic) and they were worth reading further. One was in the middle (Blood Binds) and it didn't grab me in that one episode.

The short stories were mostly unremarkable. One Blind Date, had the twist in the tail that I expect from short stories. Gypies was good. The poetry didn't appeal. The book reviews were of books I'd never heard of, and the reviews weren't as good as I'd expect in a magazine.

The price is pretty low, so it's probably worth it as you'll probably find a few stories you'll like.

5.0 out of 5 stars eFiction Magazine Positively Sparkles June 7, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
Aaron Wilson's tantalizingly dark and modern fairy tale, The Lily Pad tosses the reader into the throes of a nightmare borne from the shenanigans of a high strung, club-hopping glamourpuss.

ED Lindquist rockets us into the deep darkness of the void with Fireflies, where gut twisting, space-age noir unfolds with lightning speed. This story is the stuff that SF was made of, the kind of storytelling that made me fall in love with Sci-Fi, in the first place.

June's issue veers off from the uber-fantastic and yanks us back down to earth into the realms of mystifying murders, warped realities and the twisted rationale of a psycho serial killer.

A fine selection of poetry leads up to the second installment of Glen Binger's serial, Timeline. Essie Holton explores world of zombies and vampires in her reviews of A.M. Harte's Hungry For You and Kit Iwasaki's Vampire General: Intern With the Vampire.

eFiction Magazine, launched just a little bit over over a year ago. Each monthly issue features a robust mix of prose and poetry from an eclectic bunch of talented contributors. I dare say Editor-in-Chief, Doug Lance's brain child is growing into quite the respectable literary publication!

5.0 out of 5 stars Cool e-mag for the fiction lover September 26, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
Lots of content from a variety of sources. There were three e-book reviews in the copy that I just finished reading which offered an unbiased point of view of independent fiction. Nice graphics on the inside as well. Read it on my computer screen and there was no distortion of pictures or text.

Topic From this Discussion
I'm the Editor-in-Chief of eFiction, ask me anything.

I want to give the magazine as a gift subscription to a friend but the only way I can order is via one-click and that is going to send the mag to me - not to her. How do I place the order?
