The Popshot editors are pleased to introduce the latest instalment of our journal, The Fantasy Issue!

We asked our contributors to write about their wildest dreams; to examine whether fantasy is delusion, creativity or a fool’s paradise.

For The Fantasy issue we sought to nod briefly to “Fantasy” with a capital F, while also representing wider interpretations that go beyond genre; to take in dreams, desires and the human ability to build our own realities however far fetched. This issue includes dark, funny and revealing fantasies, from online dating with a murderous twist, to midnight trysts with Elvis, foot fetishes, prophets and mermaids hitting puberty.

Our guest author is Joanne Ramos whose debut novel The Farm, about a surrogacy service for the super wealthy, has been gracing bestseller lists. In her flash fiction story, So Beautiful, exclusively published in Popshot, she gives voice to the earth — who is, it transpires, rather fed up with mankind.

Whatever your fantasies, we hope you enjoy reading this issue.
