What is Ares?
What’s the big idea?
The big idea is to fill a void — to publish a magazine that combines a stand-alone, unique, playable board game in every issue with a collection of spectacular, new fiction. Our focus is science fiction, but we aren’t zealots. We’ll publish select other genres, including pulp adventure, fantasy, and alternative history.
In addition to the board game and fiction, Ares also includes articles and interviews that relate to geek-culture and nerdy science stuff.
We publish 2 – 4 times a year, with each issue crammed full of enough amazing content to keep you busy until you receive the next one.
We have temporarily suspended fiction submissions because we received more good material than we could quickly publish. We will open the fiction submission spigot again probably around the production time of Issue #6. In the meantime, keep sending in your game designs and articles.
Thank you for your interest. We look forward to rewarding it, in spades.
