About Dark Matter Zine

Dark Matter Zine’s goal is to engage with creativity, culture, literature and publishing. Contributors express their loves and rants, promoting awareness of content (books, films etc) and creators.

Dark Matter Zine was shortlisted for a Ditmar Award in 2014 and Nalini Haynes, Dark Matter Zine‘s managing editor, received a Chronos Award for Best Fan Writer in 2013 for her work on Dark Matter Zine.

Regular contributors to Dark Matter Zine express their love for many genres of fiction and nonfiction in their regular writing and reviewing. Guest bloggers usually work in the field in some way; they’re often published authors.

Dark Matter Zine began life in 2010 as an independent PDF fanzine – an informal magazine – exploring literature, TV, movies, art, life, the universe and everything. On 29 April 2012 this website was launched.

Since then Dark Matter Zine‘s focus has expanded to include all genres, fiction and non-fiction.

Dark Matter Zine is a fan publication funded out of my own pocket with some assistance from donations. Donations will be acknowledged in ‘thank you’ posts.
