Please keep in mind our magazine's title. We almost never buy a story or a poem which has no fantasy content; we hardly ever buy sf which lacks fantasy elements. But this leaves room for an extraordinary range of fiction?and poetry: Robert E. Howard's Conan the Cimmerian and modern swordplay & sorcery were born in Weird Tales. H.P. Lovecraft's Cthulhu Mythos, Miskatonic University and all, is welcome to our pages, as are stories set in fantasy-worlds of your own invention. We're looking for the best in fantasy-based horror, heroic fantasy, and exotic mood pieces?plus the occasional odd story that won't fit anywhere else. We want to please our readers with superior writing and to surprise them with new ideas. To this end, we will occasionally publish a story in which the ominous, eldritch, and/or squamous horrors waiting to pounce turn out to be quite innocuous. We almost never use material already published in the US.
