It looks like Realms of Fantasy is not closing after all. I’m thrilled not only because it means we get to see more stories from one of our strongest Fantasy publications (especially for magic realism), but also because it means my story “Tio Gilberto and the Twenty-Seven Ghosts” will be able to be published in Realms after all. (I had sold the story to them before it closed.)
Warren Lapine is my new hero for buying the mag and bringing it back to life. And many thanks to Doug Cohen, ROF’s assistant editor for being helpful and patient with all us antsy writers during the month or so when our stories were in an odd state of limbo.
