Mirror Dance - Fiction (Go to Poetry)

Mirror Dance is a free online magazine of fantasy in all its sub-genres, including magic realism, urban fantasy or contemporary fantasy, sword and sorcery, fantasy-of-manners, and stories with mythological or folkloric themes. We are especially interested in publishing secondary world stories, and stories from diverse ethnic, racial, and religious viewpoints. As a member of the Outer Alliance, we actively seek fiction with LGBTQA themes, and characters who challenge traditional concepts of gender.
