Through the Looking-Glass: A Companion

Following the Through the Looking Glass Sesquicentenary Conference, we invite submissions for a Companion to Through the Looking-Glass of short pieces (4000 words), centring around Lewis Carroll’s Through the Looking-Glass, its cultural and adaptation history, and its ongoing relevance until today.

Fantasy Literature: A Companion

This companion seeks to update and address underexamined areas of fantasy fiction, with the chief aim to provide a global introduction to English-language and English-translation fantasy fiction with a focus on the contemporary written word (narrative prose) produced in late 20th and early 21st century.
