Welcome to The Arcanist! We’re a digital literary magazine that focuses on fantasy, sci-fi, and horror flash fiction. We strongly believe that fantasy and sci-fi are two of the most important genres in the literary world, helping us escape to distant lands, reflect on our shared humanity, and gaze into the future. We want to provide readers snippets of the genres they love and we want to give writers of these genres a paid place to publish their work.
