BFS Publications

Over the years the British Fantasy Society has issued dozens of publications, on all manner of subjects, including fiction, biographies and bibliographies. Editors, authors, writers and artists have been as many and varied as their subject matter. The society currently produces two periodicals: BFS Horizons is a paperback journal of fiction, poetry and art; and the BFS Journal is now devoted to interviews, academic articles, reviews and features.

Prism (originally known as the BFS Bulletin) and Dark Horizons first appeared in 1971. Later, a range of booklets was produced as bonus items, as part of the membership, although each had a price tag for resale to non-members through specialist shops. Eventually, the BFS began to publish paperback and hardback books, though this continues on today it is predominantly for members-only consumption. From the very outset it has been the BFS’s aim to produce items that will appeal to a wide audience and endure as tributes to favourite authors and subject matters in the best way possible.
