Here We Go Again: Realms of Fantasy Folds

At the risk of sounding like Yogi Berra, it's deja vu all over again.  On Wednesday, William Gilchrist of Damnation Books announced the folding of Realms of Fantasy.  Gilchrist stated that the company was losing money on the magazine, and that the October issue (which shipped late) will be the last.  The magazine is currently up for sale.

I've been distracted by things the last few days, including but not limited to NaNoWriMo, so I only saw the announcement this morning.  While I wasn't greatly impressed with what I've seen of the magazine lately, I hate to see it go and hope someone picks up the torch.  I'll post further thoughts sometime in the next few days, once I've gotten some family obligations off my plate.


  1. Yeah, I got some emails about this. LIke you, I hate to see it fold although I know it's tough to keep a mag going, especially in this economic climate'

  2. What I don't understand, but have some guesses about, is why other fiction magazines are still surviving but this one can't seem to.
