Refund Policy

While we feel that we offer a good product, we do realize that our publication is not for everyone.  As such, we offer a 10 day no questions refund policy* on single issues, and a 30 day no questions refund* on subscriptions.  Just contact us at admin@speculativefictionstories.com with 'refund request' as the subject, and your order details in the body and we will process the refund to you as soon as possible.


For subscriptions, a partial refund may be requested after the 30 day period with the following restrictions.  Any issues of the publication already sent out will be billed against the original subscription price at the most appropriate higher rate.  For example, if you have received three months of a twelve month subscription, the cost of a three month subscription will be deducted from the total cost of the twelve month subscription before a refund is processed.  A processing fee of 5% of the original price will also be added to this amount before the refund is processed.


* We reserve the right to refuse further business with parties requesting refunds.  If you decide the publication is not to your taste, there is no reason you should be ordering it again.  Repeated orders after a refund will void future refunds.
