Biographical / Historical

Originally titled 'Pirate Writings' and published by a company of the same name, in 1999 publishing was taken over by DNA Publications, and, in 2001, the name changed to 'Fantastic Stories of the Imagination' under editor Edward J McFadden III. Though the name is directly lifted from the line of 'Fantastic' magazines published by Ziff Davis, which for a time also went under the name 'Fantastic Stories of the Imagination,' the two publications are unrelated. Despite the name, 'Pirate Writings' published a wide array of fiction, from science fiction and fantasy to mystery--though the latter was dropped following the magazine's rebranding. 'Pirate Writings,' which ran 2500 copies at its peak, rarely followed a set publishing schedule, though at its most frequent (1996) it was published quarterly. 'Pirate Writings/Fantastic' only saw one or two issues a year after takeover by DNA Publications; the Winter 2006 issue proved to be the last, as McFadden resigned in January 2007.
