R.I.P. Realms

According to their publisher, Realms of Fantasy Magazine and Dreams of Decadence are dead.

My very first short story sale was to Dreams of Decadence. I still have a photocopy of the check for the astounding amount of $9.23. The story, "Irish Blood" was reprinted in BEST OF DREAMS OF DECADENCE an Ace mass-market paperback (March 2003).

This is sad news. Realms was going to do an all-woman issue, and I planned to submit a story. The publisher is probably correct in saying that a terrible -- and still getting worse -- economic climate contributed to the magazine's failure.
