The future is true. It's going to happen, even if it doesn't. Cryosleep is a spin-off sub from /r/nosleep. Here you can post your original sci-fi and post apocalypse stories. It's like /r/nosleep but the constraints of the "believability" rule do not apply here.
Welcome to the Library of Shadows. From ghosts to the apocalypse, from zombie-rom-coms to grotesque police files, from monsters to mobsters, we prefer horror but we'll gladly run anything that makes you bite nails and keep turning the page. We display material from authors both new and experienced to help them build their readership and promote their projects and portfolios.
So, who likes building teams? Who likes being picked last? Who cares. The idea is simple: The beginning of each month we hold a draft with randomly selected captains. Each team of writers has the rest of the month to develop a story, each member creating two or three paragraphs.
SLEEPSPELL is a subreddit dedicated to original pieces of fantasy-related fiction. All fantasy subgenres are welcome! We pride ourselves on being a spin-off of the popular /r/NoSleep and /r/cryosleep subreddits, but suspension of disbelief is not necessary here. Instead, we ask that you simply be supportive of any and all submissions and upvote those that you thoroughly enjoy to help others find them!
This reddit is for fans and creators of Science Fiction and related media in any form. SF topics should involve plausible ideas reached through the rational application of science. General speculative fiction posts are fine as long as they involve Science Fiction.
**A place to discuss published SF**—novels, short stories, comics, images, and more. Not sure if a book is SF? Then post it! Science Fiction, Fantasy, Alt. History, Postmodern Lit., and more are all welcome here. **The key is that it be speculative, not that it fit some arbitrary genre guidelines**. Any sort of link or text post is welcome as long as it is about printed / text / static SF material.
