What is Fantasy Matters?
Fantasy Matters is a website that is dedicated to talking about any and all matters related to fantasy and other forms of speculative fiction and media, with the underlying assumption that these works are fun, interesting, and important. Editors will post some content each weekday, but a significant part of the website is our forums, where you, our readers, can contribute to the conversation. Read our welcome post here.
Who is behind this website?
This website is an extension of a conference held at the University of Minnesota in 2007, which was organized by Lindsay Craig, Kathleen Howard, and Jennifer Miller. Adam Miller is the site’s webmaster, and we feature articles from a large and growing group of scholars, authors, and fans of fantasy literature.
Can I write for Fantasy Matters?/I have an idea for a super-sweet article I’d like you to feature…
If you have a book/movie/video game that you’d like us to review, or if you have an idea for an article that you’d like us to write about, let us know—we’ll see if it’s a good fit for the site, and if it is, we’ll assign it to one of our writers. If you would like to be a front-page contributor to the site, the best way to make that happen is to post regular, thoughtful, well-written posts in the comments. We will be paying attention to those who regularly comment, and contacting those who we think would fit in well with our current group of writers.
I have something I'd like to send you to review. Where should I send it?
For books and print material, please contact Kat Howard directly at kat DOT howard AT fantasy-matters DOT com
For all other material, please contact Jen Miller directly at jen DOT miller AT fantasy-matters DOT com

Do you sell T-shirts with your logo?
Not yet, but we like the idea! Let us know if you’d buy one, and if there’s enough interest, we’ll set something up!
What fantasy literature should I be reading?
We will feature several book reviews on the main page each week, which are tagged “Reviews,” and some of our personal favorites appear as Amazon links along the right hand side of the site. You should also check out our weekly feature on Tuesday entitled "Our Fantastic Favorites"--we'd love it if you emailed us with your own favorites to be featured in this column!
