FANTASY MAGAZINE is a digital magazine focusing exclusively on the fantasy genre. In its pages, you will find all types of fantasy-dark fantasy, contemporary urban tales, surrealism, magical realism, science fantasy, high fantasy, folktales_and anything and everything in between. FANTASY is entertainment for the intelligent genre reader-we publish stories of the fantastic that make us think, and tell us what it is to be human. In this issue's short fiction, Eliza Chan explores gender and power across generations in "The Tails That Make You," and P H Lee's "A True and Certain Proof of the Messianic Age, with two lemmas" brings us folklore through an algorithmic lens; for flash fiction, Mary Soon Lee explores classic fairy tales through a different lens in "Introduction to Couture 101," and M. H. Ayinde grows something new in "Girlfriend Material"; for poetry, we have "The God's Wife" by Nana Afadua Ofori-Atta and "The Himba Destroyer" by Yvette Lisa Ndlovu. Plus! A collective interview (part one of two) with several of the Top Ten Finalists for this year's Locus Awards, from the Best Fantasy Novel category.
