What they are saying about Spellbound
“I can’t recommend this e-zine enough for young fantasy lovers (and us not-so-younguns as well!) or young readers you want to introduce the fantasy genre to. With each issue of Spellbound, young readers will find themselves in a world of magic, tricksy creatures, surprising wonders, and so much more!” - Word Spelunking
This chapbook-format quarterly distinguishes itself from a host of other small press f/sf magazines by aiming squarely at the juvenile audience. It scores a direct hit, too, with high-calibre stories, poetry, and articles focused on the “feature creature” of the issue and on other folklore/fairy tale/mythology themes. – Donna Farley, Black Gate
It’s great to see people putting out fantasy magazines for children. Spellbound has a good variety of stories for younger readers. – Dave Kirtley, Tangent
As a reviewer of children’s and young adult material, as an author of the same genres, and as a mother of three creative children, I high recommend Spellbound. – Jennifer LB Leese
