The April Fantasy Magazine Rack
The April magazine rack is crammed with the 20 most recent issues of the top English-language fantasy magazines on the planet. (And I didn’t even have room for the second issue of James Maliszewski’s The Excellent Travelling Volume — you can find it here.) Click on any of the images above to see our detailed report on each issue.
As we’ve mentioned before, all of these magazines are completely dependent on fans and readers to keep them alive. Many are marginal operations for whom a handful of subscriptions may mean the difference between life and death. Why not check one or two out, and try a sample issue? There are magazines on the rack for every budget, from completely free to $35/issue. If you find something intriguing, why not try an issue next time you find yourself browsing the magazine rack…. or take a chance on a subscription? I think you’ll find it’s money very well spent.

Thanks Gus! I had a lot of fun putting it together. I used to love riding my bike to the local magazine rack when I was a teeanger, and seeing which of my favorite SF magazines had arrived that month… and I still do. I figured it was time to do a virtual magazine rack here at Black Gate.

Very true. It’s hard to look at all those great magazines and decide that the short fiction market is in trouble.
[…] on out there in the world of magazines and short fiction (see John O’Neill’s recent posts). So much so that I’m a little behind this month trying to catch up. I haven’t gotten […]
