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.

Please don't use footnotes in your submissions.

All contributors are sent a complimentary copy of the print version and the electronic version.

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,

Happy families were everywhere: beaming enthusiastically from magazine advertisements and indulging in wholesome hijinks on ubiquitous post-war sitcoms. However, while the typical post-war family may conjure up images of white picket fences, exuberant children playing on green lawns, and pies cooling on windowsills, a sinister reimagining of American domesticity emerged in the pages of pulp novels and popular magazines.

J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter is one of the most successful series of all time, and since its publication, has inspired scholars to analyze its engagement with gender, its relationship to mythology and fairy tales, and its literary and historical influences. Scholars have examined the impact that the books have had on popular culture, children’s literacy, and children’s literature. Collections have considered the series as a way of exploring politics, philosophy, religion, ethics, and psychology, among other fields. Yet, lost in all this scholarship has been a serious engagement with the way the series portrays education.
