Editors: K. Tempest Bradford, Cat Rambo, and Sean Wallace
Fantasy Magazine is a free online professional magazine, devoted to providing readers with a mix of features and fiction on a daily basis, all drawing on the broad wealth of sexualities, politics, and cultures in our world. The magazine has published stories by both established and up-and-coming authors, including Peter S. Beagle, Jeffrey Ford, Theodora Goss, Caitlin Kiernan, Nick Mamatas, Lisa Mantchev, Holly Phillips, Tim Pratt, Ekaterina Sedia, Catherynne M. Valente, Jeff VanderMeer, Marly Youmans, and many more.
In 2009 we’ll be expanding our coverage of fantasy entertainment and literature, looking to become a destination for reviews, interviews, and engaging, in-depth discussions of genre news. In addition, we’ve just become a SFWA professional market; inked deals to bring FM to readers through Fictionwise, Kindle, Mobipocket, PortableReading, and Sony editions; and, towards the end of the year look for our print anthology, Worlds of Fantasy: The Best of Fantasy Magazine, edited by Cat Rambo and Sean Wallace.
Find out why Locus thinks “Fantasy Magazine is one of the most promising new publications to launch in the field in years” and what prompted Strange Horizons to say, “It is quite wonderful and very exciting.”
