Changing Things Up - Magazines to the Masses

  For those of you not in the know, I'm not much of a web manipulator.  I use canned backgrounds and a pretty crappy picture with text edited in Paint.  What that translates to is I'm always looking at ways for to clean this place up and improve it, albeit with my limited abilities.
   Today I'm adding a separate list of magazine links.  I was prompted by learning about the existence of "Swords and Sorcery Magazine" at "Adventures Fantastic".  I guess if I want people to keep writing this stuff I should do as much as I can to publicize the folks willing to make it available.  If you know of any other sites printing original content and you think they're worth a look, please let me know.  Thanks in advance.


  1. The magazine list is a great idea. Wish I'd thought of it.

    And thanks for the mention. :)

    You might look at Beneath Ceaseless Skies. They publish sword and sorcery on a regular basis. Apex and Something Wicked are two other magazines which might be of interest. I've only recently started reading them, so I don't have a good feel for how much S&S they publish. They both tend to focus on science fiction and horror, but horror and sword and sorcery are first cousins. Fantasy merged with Lightspeed last year, and I haven't had time to read much of it in the last few months to get an idea of the S&S content. Clarkesworld is mainly science fiction from what I can tell.

    Here are the links:

  2. Thank you for the comments and thank you for the info. Beneath the Ceaseless Skies - I had a bookmark for them and lost it and confused them with Realms of Fantasy - doh! I'll check out the rest.
    I really need to get up to speed on the wealth of new stuff out there. Finding out someone like James Enge has been published for almost a decade now and just having come across him last year is annoying.

  3. You're welcome. I have a nagging feeling I'm forgetting a publication. If I think of it, I'll let you know. Also, I just found Daily Science Fiction (, which posts a story a day on weekdays. It's available by email. They publish some fantasy, but I don't know how much or what type. I signed up two days ago and haven't read today's story yet.
