AcademFic is an open access periodical dedicated to publishing fiction by academics outside of those areas such as creative writing in which it may be part of their academic and professional activity. Many academics write for pleasure. Some write to engage the public with realistic and well-informed historical fiction. Some write to use science fiction for philosophical thought experiments. AcademFic is a home for such writing and much more.
