What the heck is Bright Metallic?

Bright Metallic is a science fiction magazine created in the virtual world, Second Life. It features art, photography, short stories, poetry, locations, events, news, and builds by Second Life residents following a broad science fiction theme. Our definition of "science fiction" includes, but is not necessarily limited to:

dystopia, speculative futures, steampunk, cyberpunk, atom punk, slipstream, military sci-fi, tech noir, weird west, hard sci-fi and the countless other sci-fi genres.

Bright Metallic can be read in-world as a HUD or on the web, currently on Issuu. It is distributed through our Monolith/Minilith server & kiosk systems, created by Thohi Torok.

"Individual science fiction stories may seem as trivial as ever to the blinder critics and philosophers of today - but the core of science fiction, its essence has become crucial to our salvation if we are to be saved at all."

Issac Asimov
