Thought there was a few interesting points.

I'm just starting to explore substack and actually am struggling to find the sff areas. Typing in fantasy does tend to bring up a lot of fantasy football as well as the sff fantasy.
 
I've never even considered using Substack to find fiction: all I read there is journalism/culture/society writing. I may have to nose around for that.
Done a little more delving and there is https://substack.com/top/fiction

Also just tried putting in sci fi and there were some hits, not sure how good they are as quitting for the night, but they are there.
 
Attempted to use it last year. Going back for another look. Looking search science fiction, selected publications. People or posts doesn't show much science fiction.

There actually does look to be a fair bit of scifi and fantasy on Substack. The search doesn't work very well for finding it, but once you join and start using the Notes feature it's easier to connect with people on there. I decided to give it a try and finished getting my page there all setup this week and have encountered quite a number on there writing scifi, fantasy, horror, speculative fiction, and every related genre/sub-genre in between. Also, once you start following a few the site's pretty good at suggesting more.
