Support Us

AE exists because of amazing support from our fans.

AE is 100% donation funded and powered by volunteers.  If you’d like to help, sign up to be a supporter. Yes, the swag is real. We also accept one-time donations via PayPal.

Here’s how you can help.

  1. Give directly. It costs us about $300 to publish a story, 90% of which goes directly to the author. Every dollar brings us one step closer to publishing another story.
  2. Sign up.  Get free access to the archives and a cool avatar for the comments section. Knowing our users helps us attract advertisers and apply for grant funding.
  3. Send us some social media love. Every like/follow/thumbs-up/gilding/etc helps. Find us on twitter and fb.

Become a monthly supporter on Patreon (and get great perks!) or send us an email at editors to sponsor us directly. We’re always open to sponsorship of issues (quarterly) or individual stories. is the best thing we’ve ever made, and we want you to be part of it. Help us open minds with science fiction from the frozen north.

A huge, inter-dimensional and extraterrestrial thank-you to our amazing supporters for making AE possible!
