Unstuck is a nationally distributed literary journal based in Austin, Texas. We emphasize stories, poems, and even essays with elements of the fantastic, the futuristic, the surreal, and the strange. In our pages, you'll find everything from straight-up science fiction and fantasy to domestic realism with a twist of the improbable. Every issue of Unstuck includes a mix of established and emerging writers.
In its first three years of publication, Unstuck has been praised in The New York Times and Poets and Writers and reprinted in Harper's and Electric Literature's Recommended Reading. We've featured new work from writers like Steve Almond, Matt Bell, Aimee Bender, Kate Bernheimer, Arthur Bradford, Kevin Brockmeier, Edward Carey, Matthew Derby, Rikki Ducornet, Amelia Gray, J. Robert Lennon, Jonathan Lethem, Elizabeth McCracken, Joe Meno, Rick Moody, Mary Ruefle, Tomaz Salamun, Patrick Somerville, and Dean Young.
Our journal is published each February in a big, heavily illustrated perfect-bound print edition. Issues are also available as e-books from online retailers like Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and (beginning soon) Weightless Books.
