About The Zodiac Review
The Zodiac Review
was launched in 2011 to provide a quality venue for readers and new, emerging and established writers of literary/genre fiction—the merger of literary fiction and any
genre that joins it.
A significant number of readers and writers are increasingly searching for that certain something that’s missing from both the strictly guarded world of purely literary fiction and the many worlds of sharply defined genre fiction: a publishing home where the two realms meet. The need for a hospitable publication in hybrid territory is growing. The Zodiac Review
is here to meet that need.
We have termed this wonderful blend of writing “literary/genre fiction.” You may know it as slipstream, hybrid or genre-bending fiction, or you may think of it as we do: darn good writing that pulls you in and keeps you there well beyond the final words.
