Imagine a future beyond tomorrow, where the Human Adventure is just beginning. We did, and we invite you to join us.

DreamForge is a full-color, illustrated print magazine with a quarterly digital/online edition called DreamForge Anvil (with more articles and features).

In 2023-2024, we have more stories, more options, and add-ons, along with an anthology sized MEGA Issue to round out our publication year with the theme “The Grand Uplift.”

Our Exciting 5th Year Goals Include:

• Adding an extra anthology-sized Mega Issue to Our Line Up, with the theme “The Grand Uplift.”
• $500 Bonus for Best Story of the Year, voted by our Readers.
• Setting a Stretch Goal of raising our pay rate to $0.08/word.
• Through our words to present more positive worlds to optimistic readers and with our webinars and DreamCaster writing group, to help more hopeful writers find their voice and improve their fiction.

Positive Fiction and The Grand Uplift

We become what we imagine! So, all DreamForge stories engage readers with strong, empathetic characters and welcoming communities committed to positive outcomes. With our 2024 Mega Issue taking on the theme of “The Grand Uplift,” we hope to envision and call for:

• A dramatic turning point or event that sparks a wave of positive change and growth.
• A powerful movement or process that brings about positive change on a large scale, such as social, economic, or cultural advancements.
• A collective endeavor or initiative that seeks to elevate humanity's knowledge, understanding, or wisdom.
• A period of rapid progress, innovation, and development in various fields, such as science, technology, art, or philosophy.
• A sense of unity and shared purpose among people working together towards a common goal of betterment and upliftment.
Stories for "The Grand Uplift" will suggest an inspiring and momentous shift that benefits humanity, fostering a sense of hope, progress, and optimism.

Learn About DreamForge's 5th Year of Publication


DreamForge is a Science and Fantasy Fiction Magazine founded on the idea that “The Human Adventure is Just Beginning.” And if I were to add to that, just the idea or the hope that we are becoming more humane as we evolve.

We often use the tagline: “In all worlds and times, our tales revolve around those individuals and groups who bring meaning and value to the world, whose actions are of consequence, and whose dreams are the vanguard of things to come.”

From Uproar Books: The Worlds of Light and Darkness is a collection of the best speculative fiction from the pages of DreamForge and Space & Time literary magazines, including short stories by Jonathan Maberry, Scott Edelman, and more.

“The combining of stories that have been printed by these two publications is genius.” – Booklist, the book review journal of the American Library Association.

DreamForge Anvil

In all worlds and times, our tales revolve around those individuals and groups who bring meaning and value to the world, whose actions are of consequence, and whose dreams are the vanguard of things to come.

With DreamForge Anvil, we’ll buy and publish great stories that you’ll love  – speculative fiction that is positive and hopeful, demonstrating humanity’s ability to overcome challenges.

More than just the stories, we’ll go behind-the-scenes of our story telling with author and editor notes, giving writers the opportunity to participate the in the process and improve their own writing.


In all worlds and times, our tales revolve around those individuals and groups who bring meaning and value to the world, whose actions are of consequence, and whose dreams are the vanguard of things to come.

Whether you call that Solarpunk, Hopepunk, or just DreamForge  stories, you’ll find them here.

Our goal is to publish fiction and commentary that embody, in one way or another, these essential principles: integrity and decency, compassion and creativity, intelligence and inventiveness, the rule of law and liberty under the law, and the dignity of the individual.

We do not subscribe to hopelessness or futility as a vision of the future or of any setting or situation.

We believe in the power of synergy to unleash the potential of disparate individuals and communities for the betterment of all.

Support Us & Join the DreamForge Adventure!

At DreamForge Magazine, we welcome readers with a passion for positive fantasy and science fiction. Here you will find stories where characters endure, overcome, and embrace that spirit of wonder and discovery through which sentient beings invest the universe with meaning and purpose.

Our outlook is sanguine, faithful to those dreamers and makers who came before us to brave ages far darker than our own, supportive of present idealists who remain indomitable in the face our time’s apocalyptic fears, and hopeful that the principles of compassion, justice, and truth shall endure until the end of time.
