RoF was one of those magazines on my "must be published in" list - it wasn't just the quality of the fiction, which was top-rate, but it was beautifully made, with incredible story illustrations that made me want to be published in it even that much more. It also had a fair amount of articles on fantasy in other mediums that I felt gave it an edge over other short fiction markets - RoF never ignored reporting on the blockbuster fantasy movies and television shows that I hoped would entice non-fiction readers into picking up an issue or two, or even subscribe to (thus funding contributing writers). Well, I guess not enough people did pick it up. What a shame. Godspit and FUCK.
