As part of Lightspeed’s Kickstarter for their Women Destroy Science Fiction! special issue, one of the stretch goals that was unlocked due to the campaign’s tremendous success was the publication of a Women Destroy Fantasy! special issue, which will be guest-edited by former Fantasy Magazine editor Cat Rambo. The issue is in the works now and will be published in October 2014. If you’d like to write something for that issue, the writing guidelines are available on our submissions page. If you’d like to read the issue, four of the eight stories included in the issue will be available here on fantasy-magazine.com, and the rest will be available in the ebook edition, which will be available in October, and will be available for pre-order soon.
