Welcome to All Worlds Wayfarer!

“When you read a great book, you don’t escape from life, you plunge deeper into it.” -Julian Barnes

Stories are magic. An author arranges symbols on a page to bring life to entire worlds. Any curious traveler needs only read to be transported thereto a destination that transcends space and time.

The genres that most embrace this magic of infinite possibilityfantasy, science-fiction, horror, magical realismare called escapist. However, their symbolic, speculative nature not only takes us beyond Earthly boundaries but also helps us to better understand and find wonder in our own world. The most powerful stories transcend, enlighten, and entertain all at once.

All Worlds Wayfarer is a literary magazine specializing in character-and-theme-driven speculative fiction. Let us take you on a tour through realms, lives, and possibilities that will inspire and move you. When you return home, we hope that you won't quite be the same. Enjoy your travels!

“A book, too, can be a star, a living fire to lighten the darkness, leading out into the expanding universe.”
