“Fantastika” – a term appropriated from a range of Slavonic languages by John Clute – embraces the genres of fantasy, science fiction, and horror, but can also include alternative histories, gothic, steampunk, young adult dystopian fiction, or any other radically imaginative narrative space.


The goal of Fantastika Journal and its annual conference is to bring together academics and independent researchers who share an interest in this diverse range of fields with the aim of opening up new dialogues, productive controversies and collaborations. We invite articles examining all mediums and disciplines which concern the Fantastika genres.

Don't forget to follow us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram!


The 2017 Fantastika conference - Performing Fantastika - 

will be held at Lancaster University, UK, April 28-29, 2017.

Registration is now open and the conference is FREE! Click here for info.
