Urban Fantasy Magazine

Issue #1 cover art by Paul Pederson. 
The very first issue of Urban Fantasy Magazine is available for download!

I’m a submissions editor for UFM, and I hope you’ll check it out. The price is set at “pay what you want,” which can include totally free (if you dig what we’re doing, we hope you’ll decide to help us keep doing it).

Urban Fantasy Magazine is a monthly online publication that features original and classic short fiction, non-fiction articles, and book reviews. As the name implies, we focus on fantasy stories with realistic settings. Managing Editor Jordan Ellinger puts it like this: "[We] don’t believe that UF stories need to be in an “urban” setting, per se. We welcome rural fantasy, and especially stories set in unusual and under-represented locations—as long as they are here on Earth. This Earth." [See his full post on "What is Urban Fantasy" here]
