The journal is a mix of articles and is keen to accept submissions from people who want to write about fantasy, horror and science fiction. Our focus is primarily the former, but our readers have interests across all three genres.
Academic articles for the BFS Journal should be between 2500 and 6000 words. We prefer nearer the former, as this is about the size of a conference paper. References in the text should be (Author, Date of Edition: Page Number) with a full publication listing for the bibliography given for each article at the end.

We Want the Wilderness: Essays Examining Franchise Storytelling
We contend that inventive storytelling within media franchises, such as Star Wars and Marvel, becomes hampered by the commercial needs of business on one side and the fans’ desires for continuity and references—in the forms of callbacks—on the other. We Want the Wilderness: Essays Examining Franchise Storytelling will look for moments when content producers were able to skillfully negotiate (or avoid all together) these dual pressures or, conversely, when these pressures created insurmountable obstacles to storytelling.
Why, I can smile, and murder whiles I smile,
And cry 'Content' to that which grieves my heart,
And wet my cheeks with artificial tears,
And frame my face to all occasions.
I'll drown more sailors than the mermaid shall;
I'll slay more gazers than the basilisk;
I'll play the orator as well as Nestor,
Deceive more slily than Ulysses could,
And, like a Sinon, take another Troy.
I can add colours to the chameleon,
