We're delighted to finally open our doors to submissions of translated speculative fiction, poetry and related non-fiction. Head on over to our submission guidelines to find out more! (As you can see, our website still needs a bit of polishing before it's as shiny as we want it, but we're getting there!)

Samovar came about because we wanted to discover more about the speculative fiction that was being written, read and discussed in other languages. We were lucky enough to be able to team up with Strange Horizons, who were also wanting to explore more translated fiction, and we're hugely grateful to all those who donated to last year's fund drive, and enabled us to open our doors! We're excited to see what's out there, and we're also committed to throwing a spotlight on the work of translators.

You can find out more in our introductory post on Strange Horizons. We also recently took part in a roundtable on speculative fiction in translation on, organised by our Advisory Board member Rachel Cordasco.

And you can follow us on Twitter @samovarmag.
