Summer is a great time for reading, and there were some fabulous new magazines released last month. The Fantasy Magazine rack is a snapshot of all the recent fantasy fiction magazines that deserve your attention. Magazines are a great way to discover new writers — not to mention reviews, news, opinion, and an entertaining way to keep up with the industry.

Check out all the details on the magazines above by clicking on the each of the images. Our July Fantasy Magazine Rack is here.

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 here for every budget, from completely free to $7.50/issue. If you find something intriguing, I hope you’ll consider taking a chance on a subscription. I think you’ll find it’s money very well spent.
