Shiny was a free e-zine targeting the young-adult speculative-fiction market. It was launched in 2006 by Twelfth Planet Press, as an attempt to both experiment with the e-zine form and to carve out an audience for young-adult short stories. By 2009, however, Twelfth Planet's commitments to its paying readers and an expanded publication schedule for 2010 and 2011 meant that the 'zine was forced to close down after issue 6 (2009). In just over two years, Shiny published eighteen stories, nine of which were written by Australians.
