Pornokitsch has been gleefully chatting about geek culture since 2008 - with a particular focus on books, movies, comics, games, television and music. Our mission is to treat genre seriously and examine it thoroughly, for better or for worse. And to have fun doing so.
Pornokitsch is edited by Anne C. Perry and Jared Shurin.
Our regular contributors are Jon Morgan, Molly Tanzer, Mahvesh Murad, Rebecca Levene and Jesse Bullington.
Pornokitsch was a finalist for the 2011 BSFA Awards for Non-Fiction, the winner of the 2013 British Fantasy Awards for Non-Fiction and a finalist for the 2014 Hugo Award for Best Fanzine. Editors Anne Perry and Jared Shurin were selected to the Guardian's h.club100 (for "innovators and pioneers in the creative industries") in 2013.
We are a paying market for short stories, and publish both original and reprint fiction.
Pornokitsch has previously featured stories by Adam Roberts, E.J. Swift, James Smythe, Amy Coombe, Kim Curran, Tiffani Angus, Lavie Tidhar, Becky Chambers, David Bryher and Rose Biggin, amongst many others.
We operate a (very) small non-profit press that publishes original fiction and non-fiction, organised around contemporary, relevant topics. The proceeds from these publications are donated to selected charity partners.

The Kitschies reward intelligent, progressive and entertaining fiction containing speculative or fantastic elements. We founded the award in 2009, but, although we remain avid fans, we are no longer involved, nor have been since February 2014.
The Kitschies Director is Glen Mehn, and all questions about the prize should be directed to him at submissions [at] thekitschies.com.
