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.
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.
