Speculative Fiction Stories

Speculative Fiction is a broad category encompassing a number of different genres that include elements not found in the real world at present but instead based on imagination and conjecture.

In addition to stories in science fiction, fantasy, horror, and supernatural – which are standalone categories on Stories Space – speculative fiction stories include alternate history or timeline, utopian and dystopian fiction, and superhero fiction.

Stories that are combinations of any of these (science fantasy, supernatural horror, etc.) or otherwise do not fit neatly into a single category should be submitted as Speculative Fiction.
