Realms of Fantasy May Not Be Dead
Realms of Fantasy magazine was dead, having already been through one attempted resurrection, it appears that there may still be life in the publication. Or at least enough unlife for the zombie to rise yet again. And that may or may not be a good thing. The good news is that Realms of Fantasy has been bought by Damnation Press, LLC. The bad news is that it appears that there are some concerns about the business practices that Damnation Press has engaged in. So, for better or for worse, it seems like the magazine will live on. Their website has been updated, and things appear to be business as usual. Assuming that the ethical problems Damnation Press has had in the past don't transfer over to the newly acquired publication, and they continue to offer fantasy fiction of similar or superior quality to that which Realms of Fantasy has offered in the past, this promises to be good news for speculative fiction fans.
