An online publication that publishes audio versions of short fiction, especially science fiction, fantasy, and horror.
Rather than marketing itself as a website, Dunesteef Audio Fiction Magazine markets itself as a magazine, albeit one that is published incrementally:
On a quarterly basis, we will bring you a magazine’s worth of stories. If you look at the table of contents to a magazine like Asimov’s Science Fiction, you get something like four short stories, two segments of serialized novelettes, one segment of a serialized novella, and a few poems. You will probably also get an article or two about books or conventions and the like. So, approximately seven short story length pieces, and a few bits of gravy to go on top. Quarterly (to begin with, but soon we’d like to expand to a monthly schedule), we will bring you these things.
Everything will not be released at once, however. The magazine will build itself, story by story, as the quarter goes along. One week, you’ll get a story. Two weeks later, you’ll get another story, the next week you’ll get a third story, three weeks later you’ll get an article, and so forth. This will continue, until the magazine is complete. And then we start a new quarter.
