What have the reviewers been calling Black Gate magazine? “Ambitious” (Interzone), “Wonderful” (RPGNet), “Spectacular” (Tangent Online), and “The Best Thing to happen to fantasy since Robert E. Howard faked his own death, moved to England, and took on a new identity as J.R.R. Tolkien” (The Wall Street Journal).
Okay, we’re kidding about that last one. But we’ve been thrilled to see the reception the critical press is giving BG. With just three issues shipped so far, SF Site proclaimed “Black Gate promises to be what I’m looking for.” And The Fix: The Review of Short Fiction asked “240 pages? How do they manage to fill all that?… So much for not much, in a good-looking, easy to read format. All power to John O’Neill and Black Gate!”
But don’t take our word for it. Drop by our new reviews page to read excerpts and recent articles about us from magazines such as Locus, SF Chronicle, Tangent Online, and many more. And find out why Interzone proclaimed “Does Black Gate deliver? In spades!”
