On Spec

The Canadian magazine of the fantastic

On Spec showcases the best examples of speculative fiction (science fiction, fantasy, horror and magic realism) by new and seasoned writers, many of them Canadian. On Spec readers are looking for challenging and entertaining fiction, with a particular element of the fantastic that steps away from the ordinary and takes them out of this world.
