FANTASY MAGAZINE is a digital magazine focusing exclusively on the fantasy genre. In its pages, you will find all types of fantasy-dark fantasy, contemporary urban tales, surrealism, magical realism, science fantasy, high 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.
Welcome to issue 74 of FANTASY MAGAZINE! In this issue's short fiction, we get a different kind of hero's journey in a really cool world with Aline-Mwezi Niyonsenga's "Saviour of the Light Market," and "The Rainmakers" by Megan M. Davies-Ostrom glitters and glows in a climate-based post-apocalypse. In flash fiction, Dominica Phetteplace haunts us with "24 Reasons You're Dreaming About Your Ex / 24 Razones Por Las Que Suenas Con Tu Ex," and C.L. Holland's "What the River Remembers" takes a much closer look at change through a unique perspective. For poetry, we have "Forest Maths" by Nnadi Samuel and "The Other Day The Saucers Came" by Karen Brenchley. Plus a kind of "Part 2" essay, or companion piece to our December 2020 essay, this one called "All the King's Women: the Fats" by Meg Elison.
