Fantasy Magazine is an online magazine focusing exclusively on fantasy fiction. In its pages, you will find all types of fantasy—from epic fantasy, sword-and-sorcery, and contemporary urban tales, to magical realism, science-fantasy, and folktales…and anything and everything in between. Fantasy Magazine 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.
