Realms of Fantasy Folds (Again)

For the third time in nearly three years, Realms of Fantasy has announced that it will cease publication. The current owners, William and Kim Gilchrist of Damnation Books LLC, have announced the October 2011 issue will be the last.

The Gilchrists explained in a statement that the magazine has been losing money, and that they will try to work with other magazines to pick up subscriptions — failing that, they will offer refunds. They ask that anyone interested in purchasing the magazine “should send an email to support [at] rofmag [dot] com.”

The Gilchrists purchased Realms of Fantasy just over a year ago from Warren Lapine, who bought the magazine from Sovereign Media in January 2009. For more information, see Fiction Editor Shawna McCarthy’s farewell editorial and Editor Douglas Cohen’s farewell editorial.
