In 2008, Mirror Dance began as a free, online, quarterly magazine of fantasy fiction and poetry. Over forty issues, our focus has continued to drift towards the literary, the poetic, and the unconventional, with stories that range from the humorous to the horrific. Some of our favorite works are those that deconstruct fantasy tropes and reimagine myths, fairytales, and folklore.
We value the respectful representation of diverse cultures, heritages, sexual and romantic orientations, and genders, and actively seek work written from perspectives that are under-represented in genre fiction. Please check out our current issue and see our submission guidelines for more information.
Published in October 2015, Queers Destroy Horror! is a special issue of Nightmare Magazine that is edited, written, and illustrated by exclusively LGBTQIA creators. View a selection of the content online, or purchase the full issue in e-book or paperback.
Lacuna began in October 2009 as a biannual e-journal of historical fiction with the mission of delivering well-researched, well-written, character-driven work that demonstrates an understanding of both history and human nature. After nine issues, our last issue was published in October 2013.
