From Modern Mythcraft to Magical Surrealism



Fantasy_77_March_2022Fantasy Magazine is a digital magazine focusing exclusively on the fantasy genre. In its pages, you will find all types of fantasy—high fantasy, contemporary urban tales, surrealism, magical realism, science fantasy, folktales…and anything and everything in between. Fantasy is entertainment for the intelligent genre reader—we publish stories of the fantastic that make us think, and tell us what it is to be human.

Fantasy also includes fiction podcasts, poetry, feature interviews, and Q&As with our authors that go behind-the-scenes of their stories. Our current publication schedule each month includes two original short stories and two pieces of flash fiction, along with a feature interview and an assortment of poetry. Each issue’s contents are serialized on our website throughout the month, with new features publishing on the first four Fridays of every month.
