Welcome to this third installment of Swords & Sorcery Magazine. We have two interesting stories this month for you to enjoy. They are very different in style but both feature magic and action in equal measure.
“Love and Scorpions”, by Steve Goble, is a swords and sorcery love story in which dreams are very real.
“In the Hills of Yost”, by Jeffery Scott Sims, is a horror-fantasy adventure set in a strange oasis in the midst of a wasteland.
I have been very happy with the quality of the stories that I have been able to publish in Swords & Sorcery Magazine so far but publishing great swords and sorcery and traditional fantasy stories is only one of the goals I have for the magazine. The other is to foster genre-friendly criticism. I am seeking non-fiction in the form and reviews. I also welcome comments on anything published here either in the archive, which is formatted as a blog, or on our Swords and Sorcery Magazine Page on Facebook. Please be polite but any opinions you express in your comments are of course, your own.
There is one more thing I should mention. Swords and Sorcery Magazine may need to change its name. It has been pointed out that our current name is too similar to that of another publication to which we have no connection except for an interest in the same genre. I’d be happy to hear any suggestions. I am looking for a name that describes what we publish.
As always I can be reached with comments or questions at email@example.com.
Until next month,
Editor, Swords and Sorcery Magazine
