Note: Since 2016, Fireside has been commissioning a report on the state of representation of Black authors within the speculative short fiction market, and accompanying essays. See each year’s #BlackSpecFic Report at firesidefiction.com/blackspecfic.

A Fireside Fiction Company special report

Help us do more work like this

Fireside spent nearly $1,000 producing this report, all of it going to the various writers involved. We are happy to pay for it, but if you can help us offset the cost, it will allow us to do more nonfiction work about the speculative fiction field in the future. You can make a one-time contribution via Paypal, or a set up a recurring monthly contribution on Patreon.
