Black Gate returns with a bang — and an extra 16 pages — with a jam-packed issue filled with the very best in adventure fantasy. Martha Wells graces our pages for the first time with a chilling tale of pursuit into a deadly wood in “Reflections,” the first in a series of new Giliead and Ilias stories. Morlock the Maker returns to investigate a deadly tome in a new adventure from fan favorite James Enge, and Iain Rowan’s Dao Shi the exorcist continues his escape from the forces of empire in “Welcome to the Underworld.”
Judith Berman brings us a mini-epic of dark necromancy, haunted ruins, centuries-spanning intrigue, and unquiet dead in “Awakening,” the sequel to “The Poison Well” (BG 7), and Mark Sumner kicks off a new series of chilling monster tales with “The Naturalist: Going to Applewash.”
All this plus Harry James Connolly, a Dabir & Asim story from Howard Andrew Jones, a lengthy feature on Ã¢â‚¬â„¢70s SF from Rich Horton, and much more. Subscribe Now to make sure you don’t miss out!
