Enter the halls of heroic fantasy in awe and marvel at the deeds of the mighty. Close upon the heels of Howard’s Conan, Moorcock’s Elric, and Leiber’s Fafhrd and the Gray Mouser come Ehart’s Ninshi, Heath’s Brom, and Hawkes’ Kabar. Unsheathe your sword and follow in their steps if you dare!

Another one lost… Worlds of Wonder Closing

Worlds of Wonder

Worlds of Wonder

Note from editor Sharon Partington:

In order to focus more directly on the production and sale of eBooks and print books, Lilley Press has decided to close Worlds of Wonder: A magazine of Speculative Fiction. We would like to offer a multitude of thanks to those amazing authors who have allowed us to feature their stories and worlds in the Zine during it’s run, as well as thank the many readers whose loyalty and dedication have made the Zine a pleasure to create. The current issue (October 2008) will be our last, and any stories currently slated for January 2009 are released back to the respective authors, effective immediately. You are now free to submit them to other markets.

We thank you once again for your support over the past four years and wish you all the best in your writing endeavors.

Sincerely,

Sharon Partington
Business Manager
