Publisher Warren Lapine has announced the closing of Realms of Fantasy. Lapine notes that the worsening economic climate has made continuing the magazine impossible at this time and has released any stories still held by the magazine. The December issue of the magazine will be placed on the Realms of Fantasy website for download. Lapine’s Tir Na Nog Press purchased the magazine in March 2009 after Sovereign Media announced the magazine’s closure in January of 2009.
Chris Cevasco has announced that Paradox: The Magazine of Historical and Speculative Fiction will be closing following the publication of issue #13. The magazine is closed to submissions, although Cevasco hopes to publish some anthologies in the future and notes that at some point in the future, the magazine may re-emerge with an on-line presence.
