The Abysmal Brutes

Where Are The Readers?

April 12, 2020

The Abysmal Brutes take a look at how short fiction magazines cultivate readers. Is it better to offer free content? Or should readers pay for the fiction they want? How do we support all the magazines and anthologies that come out every month? Even if we bought everything we could afford, how can we read all of these great works of fiction? There are a lot of questions to mull over in building a lasting readership. We don’t have all the answers. We’re just a couple of Pop Culture loving bums doing our best to support creators in this age of non-stop story streaming venues.
