UK Digest-size magazine, mostly published twice yearly. 24 issues from Summer 1977 to [Winter] 1991, initially published and edited by Stephen Jones and David A Sutton. Fantasy Tales began as a Semiprozine leaning towards dark fantasy and horror, with some Sword and Sorcery, much in the manner or Weird Tales (which early issues deliberately chose to emulate in layout); from #18 (Autumn 1988) it became a fully professional magazine from Robinson Publishing. Contributors included Sydney J Bounds, Kenneth Bulmer, Charles L Grant and Simon R Green. Reprints also appeared, from Robert Bloch, Robert E Howard and Michael Moorcock with his self-Parody "The Stone Thing" (October 1974 Triode). [FHP/MJE/DRL]
