Revenant is a peer reviewed e-journal dedicated to the study of the supernatural, the uncanny and the weird in any form and in any period. Committed to the scholarly, academic and creative exploration of the supernatural in its multiple, variable and fantastic forms this inter-disciplinary journal encourages discussion about the supernatural or the weird in literature, history, folklore, philosophy, science, religion, sociology and all aspects of popular culture.

All areas of discussion are welcome and we invite for example articles on classic Victorian ghost stories, Shakespeare’s ghosts, standing stones, architecture, film, television, games or new media.

Revenant promotes new writing on the supernatural, the uncanny and the weird and we are looking to publish ghost stories, tales of the extraordinary, poems and nature writing.

Articles should be of 4000 to 7000 words in length and short stories no more than 5000 words long. Reviews should be concise. Read our full submission guidelines.

Please submit all manuscripts via our submissions page.

There are also opportunities for guest edited editions.

Revenant is committed to Green politics and emphasises that the ‘natural’ is part of the super-natural.
