Support Clarkesworld

We publish every issue of Clarkesworld online for free. That's not cheap, so where does the money come from? People like you. We count on our readers and listeners to help support our efforts. Here's a list of way you can help us out:


Subscribing on your Kindle, Nook, iPad or other ereader is a great way to help us keep our funding stable throughout the year.

Support us Directly (NEW!)

Sign up to give a fixed monthly amount to Clarkesworld via, our new direct support and subscription site. You can purchase monthly subscriptions to Clarkesworld and/or Forever Magazine, or even just make a recurring pledge to help keep our free online edition and podcast available. Every little bit helps and recurring pledges help us the most. We'll be building this site up with various members-only exclusives over the next few months.

Become a Patron

If one-time gifts are more your style, consider becoming a "citizen" of Clarkesworld by making a donation of $10 or more. Every citizen earns their place in a special section of our annual anthologies! Our citizenship program follows a PBS-style tiered level of benefits. Ever wanted to become an Overlord?

Support us on Ko-Fi

If reading the online version or listening to the podcast is enough for you and you want nothing in return for supporting us, make a one-time or recurring gift over at Ko-Fi.

Order our Books

Each year, we publish a print anthology that contains all of the fiction we featured in the prior year. Revenues from the sales of this book go directly back into the magazine. If you order direct from Wyrm Publishing, we see a significantly larger share of the profits. We are Wyrm Publishing, so any additional business you send that way is also a help to Clarkesworld.

Order our Ebooks

Each issue of Clarkesworld and our annual anthologies are available as EPUB (Nook, iPad, etc.) and MOBI/KINDLE editions. Visit the Wyrm Publishing Ebookstore, Amazon Kindle Store or Barnes & Noble.

Affiliate Programs

When you click a link to Weightless Books or from our site and buy something, a portion of your TOTAL purchase price gets passed along to us. It costs you nothing, so why not stop by and click-through before you go shopping!

Advertise Your Product on Our Site

If you have a book or science fiction-related project you're trying to promote, consider running an ad on our site.

Spread the Word

One of the best things you can do for us is spread the word. We've tried to make this easier by including a ShareThis button at the bottom of each story. Clicking on this will make it easy to email friends or submit items to social sites like StumbleUpon, Reddit, Facebook or Twitter. Word of mouth advertising is the best marketing.
