Magazine Description:Penumbra is the speculative fiction e-mag published monthly by Musa Publishing. At Penumbra, the Muses are clustered in the part of the psyche caught between the darkness and the light. Whether that results in hardcore science fiction or fantasy humour, psychological horror or a Steampunk poem with a twist is out of the Muses' control. That control is in the hands of the author.
Penumbra publishes speculative fiction that always culminates in something unexpected - a flash of humour in the darkest tale or a fantasy piece that goes against the tropes - always something that hovers right on the periphery of the eclipse.
