Realms of Fantasy Mag. is Back!

November 12, 2010

If you pay attention to fantasy magazines, you know that Realms of Fantasy had been struggling for a while, and had actually folded in October when Tir Na Nog Press let the magazine go because of financial trouble (well, in this economy, it’s really no surprise).  But they announced that the magazine has been bought by Damnation Books LLC and will be making the official switch in the February issue.  More importantly, they’ve also reopened submissions.  Yay!

Realms of Fantasy is probably the best fantasy magazine out there.  They have great articles, and each issue they have about 6 or 7 short stories from submissions.  Not to mention some of the downright amazing artwork.  So I am very excited that Realms will be up and running and better than ever.

At least I hope better than ever–I love the magazine, but their articles tended to have more typos than they should in the issues I got!

    Thanks for posting about Realms of Fantasy Kira. We will do you proud. Did you see the editors and columnists are staying on? It’s an exciting time for us.

    The submission guidelines are back up on the website under the Contact Us tab. Good luck!

      Not a problem, and I really am very happy that ‘Realms’ is back. It’s very exciting, and I’m glad that the editors and columnists are coming back as well, there are some very talented people on the staff from what I can see in a reader’s viewpoint. As I told Michael below, I was working on a short story to submit when the submissions were closed, but perhaps I’ll try sending it in. Thank you for the good wishes and for stopping by Fantastical Reads!

    And none too soon since I have a submission in limbo…

      I had been working on a short story to submit, but then they closed submissions. Maybe now I’ll try to send it in. Good luck to you Michael!
