SF and Fantasy fiction
magazines: those listed below are magazines
which publish fiction, rather than just articles and reviews, though many
of them contain these as well. They are also magazines with websites.
The links have been divided into two categories, and although such categories can
at times be misleading, on balance we find them useful. The
kinds of speculative fiction published are detailed under each entry.
