Hex in the City is a online magazine dedicated to the production and promotion of quality Urban Fantasy short stories. Urban Fantasy short stories don’t quite fit in the fantasy genre because they are dark–often, as writers of Urban Fantasy, we are forced into the horror market whether or not we see our works as “horror.” For the same reasons, as readers, we’re forced to sift through piles and piles of horror and fantasy short stories that don’t quite fit our needs and wants. Our goal here at Hex in the City is to provide a venue specifically for Urban Fantasy short stories of all shapes and many sizes.
