figments is Princeton University’s premier publication for science fiction, fantasy, horror, and speculative fiction. We aim to harness the imaginations of Princeton students and alumni, and provide a space to publish the most outlandish and wonderful stories that they can produce. We believe that speculative and genre fiction as literary forms are powerful, and we work to develop their presence on Princeton’s campus.
