Women in Dark Fantasy Have Changed by Linda Robertson

In doing a bit of research looking for a dark-fantasy-related topic for this article, I sought something that I knew at least a bit about, something I felt strongly about, and something where I could add meaningfully to the conversation. Many things were considered,...

Alethea Kontis on Imposter Syndrome

Earlier this year, I met the only student Katy Kellgren ever had. He told me he just about had to bully her into being his teacher. This amazing, multiple award-winning voice actress with hundreds of audiobooks under her belt truly didn’t believe she knew anything...

Fairies with Dark Faces by I.L. Cruz

I like fairies—not a difficult admission for a fantasy writer—and I don’t mean the safe Victorian ones with gossamer wings that spread sparkles when they walk. I mean the ones that steal little children and make Faustian bargains. They were ancient and magnificent and...

You Like Me Because I’m a Scoundrel

Elflord Volume 01 Issue 01 Digital Comic

$0.99

Sit back, open your mind, and enter into a world where dreams are born. A land of fantasy awaits beckoning you to explore its hidden secrets. Travel the roads and winding wooded trails into the dark depths of the unknown while narrow eyes follow your path and low whispers spur your every step.
