Advertising

Space Westerns Magazine provides the flexibility and freedom to reach fans of Space Westerns, Space Opera, Steampunk, Star Trek, Star Wars, Firefly, Battlestar Galactica, and many other fandoms.

We feel that advertising is content and as such it should be just as relevant to the audience of this site as any story, article, review, or news items that we publish on it. All products, services, and events advertised herein should appeal to our readers. We allow our readers control over whether or not they actually see ads; By only showing ads to our readers if they want to see them we will save your time, our time, and the time of our readers.

We want our subscribers to be just as excited for our ad content as they our for our regular content. We vet our ads specifically to be of interest to our readers, because of their interest in Space Westerns. By being very choosy about the ads that we show we’re confident that when we do show ads to our readers that they can be confident that it will be an ad for something that they will be interested in.
