For those who don’t know, the magazine Realms of Fantasy, which has been in print for fourteen years, announced a couple months ago that the last issue would be April’s, due to rising cost and less income. They just couldn’t afford to keep the doors open.
The SF/F community rose to the occasion. “Save Realms of Fantasy” petitions, Yahoo groups and Facebook groups popped up all over the net. Folks raised money and wrote friends to spread the word.
And now, that hard work has paid off! Realms of Fantasy has been bought by Tir Na Nog Press and will continue to provide the fantasy and literary community with fabulous stories and artwork under the editorial direction of Shawna McCarthy.
