SF MAGAZINES: REALMS OF FANTASY Lives Again, Again

November 10th, 2010 | researchmaterial

So REALMS OF FANTASY died in ’09 from lack of newsstand sales, and was bought by one of Warren Lapine’s new companies. Lapine, who ran a cheapo mini-empire of sf/f magazines that fell apart amid claims of financial impropriety, claims to have put more than USD $50K into the relaunch of the bi-monthly. And it died again a month or two back. And now it’s been bought again, by an operation called Damnation Press whose rep doesn’t survive even the most cursory of googlings. Tobias Buckell has collected a lot of them. If, for whatever confused reason, you’d like to submit your fiction to a magazine with the healthful glow of a 1970s Soviet premier, I would suggest you read Mr Buckell’s collation before making your mind up.
