Fantasy Magazine was an American online fantasy and science fiction magazine. It was launched as a print edition at the 2005 World Fantasy Convention in Madison, Wisconsin. It continued in this format for six more issues, but in mid-October 2007, it moved online, with daily content, and spun off an original anthology, titled Fantasy.[1] The magazine has published, in the past, stories by Peter S. Beagle, Jeffrey Ford, Theodora Goss, Caitlin Kiernan, Joe R. Lansdale, Nick Mamatas, Tim Pratt, Cat Rambo, Ekaterina Sedia, Catherynne M. Valente, Jeff VanderMeer, and more.

As of January 2012, Fantasy was merged into its sister Lightspeed, and John Joseph Adams replaced Sean Wallace as publisher.[2]
