We funded on kickstarter and now we're open to submissions. Send us your best dream-touched realism and speculative fiction from October 1-November 15.


In Ancient Rome, an Augur was a religious official who looked for the will of the gods in the flight patterns of birds, and who made predictions based on the stories they read there. Today, Augur is a literary magazine that makes room for writing from uncommon perspectives, and brings together the often disparate realms of literary and genre fiction.

If you want to stay up-to-date with all of Augur Magazine’s updates, calls for submissions, and fun info as we prep for our 2018 launch, subscribe to our newsletter for the occasional friendly email.

Read the Augur Magazine Preview Issue

A collection of 12 reprints

For our inaugural release, we put together a reprint collection that represents what Augur Magazine will look for in years to come. This issue is available for free, online, forever—or you can get a fancy, full-designed PDF version by backing us at any level on kickstarter. That way, you can read us offline, too.

Click through to find worlds that contain journeys to slay an Indonesian community’s oldest foe; a trip across Canada as a surreal scifi meditation; a young girl falling in love with the Goddess of stars; and so much more. We can’t wait for you to enjoy these stories as much as we did.
