According to SF Scope, Warren Lapine and Tir Na Nog Press have purchased fiction magazine Realms of Fantasy from Sovereign Media. Lapine plans for the current editorial staff to remain in place — the first issue is slated to appear in May. Editor-in-chief Shawna McCarthy said she is very happy with the deal, “It’s a ray of good news in an otherwise gloomy world.” As a result of the new venture, Lapine will not be launching Fantastic Stories as he had announced previously.
