Overview

Fantasy Magazine, July 2011 by Catherynne M. Valente, M. Rickert, Kelly Link, J. S. Breukelaar

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. And in our July 2011 issue...

Many towns are full of folks who've lost treasures, things like a home or an eye or a family. But in J. S. Breukelaar's "Union Falls," one town full of losers is visited by a remarkable keyboard player—who uses her gifts to heal the hurts left by loss.

In our article, "When Wizards Rock," Wendy N. Wagner explores the influences of fantasy literature on pop music, and discovers that when it comes to rock and roll, magic is here to stay.

M. Rickert spins an ancient myth into a poignant reflection on tragedy throughout the ages in "The Machine.”

Our feature interview this month is with best-selling author Jacqueline Carey, author of Kushiel’s Dart and Naamah's Blessing. Hannah Strom-Martin talks with the author about urban fantasy, strong heroines, and revising Tolkien.

Bestselling author Catherynne M. Valente returns to our pages, after far too long an absence, and takes us to a Brooklyn of snow and silence in her new story "The Wolves of Brooklyn." In it, a group of friends realize just how much has changed since wolves began prowling the streets of their neighborhood.

In the related nonfiction, Lauren Davis looks at what dogs and wolves have to say to us in "Conversations With Wolves.”

Kelly Link gives us a modern vision of the Swan Princess in her story "Swans"—but this princess is far too crafty to let magic get in her way.

Between Disney movies and fantasy novels, there's a schism in the role of princesses in contemporary culture. Helen Pilinovsky explores the history of the princess in literature in her article "The Princess is Dead, Long Live the Princess!"
