Disclaimer: I received this magazine free in a contest, with no expectation of review.

I first heard about this e-Zine from the twitter feed of a favorite author who is one of the collaborators.  Here is the description:

DEEP MAGIC is a bi-monthly electronic magazine that publishes clean short fiction in the fantasy and science fiction genres (epic, paranormal, steampunk, etc). Our issues are also filled with author interviews, art features, book reviews and tips for writers.

By “clean” they mean no cussing, excessive violence or sex.  I have to say that is refreshing.  I love books like Game of Thrones but it can also be a little exhausting at times.  This is a nice respite from that and I like their approach to fiction.  I’m not much of a fan of short stories or anthologies so I wasn’t sure what to expect but I was pleasantly surprised.  There were a couple of stories that stood out as favorites. They had particularly strong sci-fi story opening the magazine and even though I don’t like that genre near as much as fantasy, it drew me in right away.  After the short stories they also included an extended preview of an upcoming novel, which will be going on my TBR.  I also enjoyed some short essays some authors wrote about their writing process.

I hope that reading this magazine will help me to find new writers to enjoy, as well as providing some light entertainment.  Hard to beat it at a $2.99 sticker price per issue (free – if you’re on Kindle Unlimited)! I really enjoyed it and I’m looking forward to getting the next issue.  I hope you’ll all look into it, it’s a good buy for fantasy/sci-fi fans.
