Latest Issue

Worldbuilding Magazine is proud to present our 2022 issue: Disasters & Apocalypses. We have a good mix of showcases, fiction, and articles this time around, all focused on endings and beginnings. It’s particularly appropriate for us as the magazine restructures and exciting new plans are being made for our future. For now, we’d like to present:

  • Four amazing articles on worldbuilding theory and practice.
  • Two short stories about endings, big and small.
  • An interview with Joe Mallozzi, writer and producer of television shows like Stargate and Dark Matter, in which we learn of the secrets for creating worlds that keep bringing viewers back.
  • An art showcase featuring Trevor Roberts’ spectacular Mystery Flesh Pit Park, the natural wonder that you won’t want to miss.
  • An interview with Jason Massey of the Dungeons and Randomness podcast showcasing their setting, Theria..
  • Reviews and analyses of four books that feature outstanding queer worldbuilding.
  • Staff picks for the things that we’re reading and watching, and your questions answered in our Ask Us Anything column!
