Welkin is magazine of fantastic literature, devoted to narrowing the gap between realist literary fiction and more traditional and fantastic modes of narrative.
We have two digital magazines: Welkin, our forthcoming quarterly ebook magazine; and The Book of Idle Tales, our online magazine, which contains very short, digestible pieces of fantastic flash fiction.
