The Best of British Fantasy is devoted to the finest fantastical, speculative, mythic, magical and weird fiction to come from United Kingdom.
We take a deliberately broad view of 'fantasy', 'British' and 'best', in order to prompt conversation and share more of our favourites with the world.
The website is the companion to the anthology series of the same name, published by NewCon Press and edited by Jared Shurin.
