Ariel: The Book of Fantasy

Tagged: Publication | Comics

Large-letter-size US magazine (12 x 9 in; about 305 x 230 mm); four issues (Autumn 1976, 1977, April and October 1978), published by Morning Star Press; edited by Thomas Durwood. Ariel was lavishly produced on glossy paper, emphasizing fantastic art and Heroic Fantasy, including episodes of the Comic strip Den by Richard Corben and a feature on Frank Frazetta. Critical and historical articles were interspersed with fiction by Harlan Ellison, Michael Moorcock, Keith Roberts, Roger Zelazny and others. In the main Ariel can be said to have been a triumph of form (good) over content (generally indifferent). [PN]
