I’ll never get to look at all on the Semi-prozine directory at this rate! Certainly never going to get to look at many in depth 😦
So onto the Bs. Blackgate is apparently a Fanzine not a Semiprozine according to Matthew David Surridge who stopped by File770 for a chat. In a previous post I also knocked out Bastion and BlackStatic.
Bard and Sages: not much to go on from the website other than the general description and cover images.
Beneath Ceaseless Skies: A magazine specializing in secondary world fantasy fiction. Some nice stuff e.g. this story about an assassin having issues trying to assassinate somebody http://www.beneath-ceaseless-skies.com/stories/a-killer-of-dead-men/
Was nominated (slate-free) for a Hugo in 2015.
Betwixt: The latest issue has this wonderfully creepy eco-horror story called Thirst http://betwixtmagazine.com/thirst-by-leanne-olson/ a story strong enough to make me want to read more of the magazine.
The Book Smugglers:
oh, nominated in 2014 for best FANzine. So off the semiprozine list.I wrote to The Book Smugglers and they say they are a Semiprozine – so hoorah for them 🙂 Primarily a review site for SF and YA fiction.
Bull Spec: The site has an active and regular review blog with a varied selection of books reviewed. Magazine is primarily regular columns and reviews.
Ha! Bs defeated!
