The World's Oldest Fantasy Magazine is now the World's Newest Fantasy Magazine . . . [Mar. 12th, 2007|11:04 am]

This spring, the unique fantasy magazine WEIRD TALES begins a return to its pioneering, cutting-edge roots, as it unveils its first all-new design in almost seventy-five years. In honor of this historic occasion, weirdtalesmagazine.com is offering new subscribers in March and April a year of the magazine for just $12 — that's half off the regular subscription price, and an incredible 66 percent off the newsstand price!

You'll start with issue #344, featuring stories by Caitlin R. Kiernan, Richard Parks, Lisa Mantchev, Scott William Carter, and Will Ludwigsen, among others; an interview with fantasy giant George R.R. Martin; commentary on our literary cousin once removed, Franz Kafka; our in-depth spread of weird book reviews; and lots more!

It's a banner year coming for WEIRD TALES: a new look this spring, the debut of new fiction editor Ann VanderMeer this fall, and the magazine's 85th anniversary celebration in early 2008. Join us now via weirdtalesmagazine.com to see why the world's oldest and most venerated fantasy magazine is also the world's newest and most exciting fantasy magazine!

Sean - love the cover and the new launch of _Weird Tales_. It looks great.

Any chance that international subscribers could get a discount too? I was surprised that there was nothing available to those of us outside of the USA. Cheers! :)

Hey Maura -- haven't seen you since Glasgow! -- you beat us to the punch. It's posted now -- international subscribers get a special $30 rate this month, which is half off cover price. Come join the fun!

Hey Stephen, it's good to hear from you. :) I've been watching your career at Wildside with great interest. I love your design work. It was a cool bit of synchronicity that you designed the cover for the Fantasy anthology in which my short story will appear. It's a small world!

I'm delighted by the cheaper sub for international readers! It's a really good deal. I'll get a sub ASAP.
