Bards and Sages Quarterly



Bards and Sages Quarterly features original fiction, art, book reviews, interviews, book announcements, and more for fans of the speculative genre. Each issue showcases the work of both fresh new writers and established authors. We strive to balance literary styles with more mainstream tastes to provide readers with a wide cross-section of speculative stories. From the whimsical and lighthearted to the dark and terrifying, fans of speculative fiction will enjoy each issue.
NON-FICTION: We are interested in literary criticisms and essays that discuss independently published and small press published speculative fiction.
