Fantastika Journal


“Fantastika”  – a term appropriated from a range of Slavonic languages by John Clute –  embraces the genres of Fantasy, Science Fiction, and Horror, but can  also include Alternate History, Gothic, Steampunk, Young Adult Dystopic  Fiction, or any other radically imaginative narrative space.


The goal of Fantastika Journal and  its annual conference is to bring together academics and independent  researchers who share an interest in this diverse range of fields with  the aim of opening up new dialogues, productive controversies and  collaborations. We invite articles examining all mediums and disciplines  which concern the Fantastika genres.
