Yankee Magazine

Magazine devoted to New England topics. Fiction Editor Edie Clark commented by e-mail (2-2000): "Until the mid 1990s, we published fiction in nearly every issue. Cutbacks then reduced fiction to two or three times a year but never a year has gone by that we have not published SOME fiction. In fact, I have recently been given the happy news that the magazine would like to re-commit to publishing fiction - more frequently. And we will start with a special "summer reading issue" in July, which will feature three pieces of fiction in a single issue - a first for us! We have published many major writers who were not then well known, most notably Stephen King, who gave us two memorable stories, "The Reach" and "Uncle Otto's Truck", in the early 1980s. Other writers we have published are Ian MacMillan, John Updike, John Dufresne, Willis Johnson, Howard Frank Mosher, Monica Wood, Ernie Hebert, Barry Targan and a substantial number of stories by Andre Dubus, including a very short story called "At Night" which a reviewer for the New York Times Book Review said was one of the most perfect short stories he had ever read."

Yankee Shorts [1943]

Little is known about this at present, except that the magazines were explicitly labelled Yankee Shorts as well as a separate title such as Romance Shorts and Western Shorts and a number. It is unclear whether these numbers represented a second generic series, or if each was numbered as a sequel to the first series.

A "shared universe" fanmagazine for ElfQuest fans, authorized by the Pinis - the first issue was subtitled "The Elfquest Companion". While the cartoonish cover (elves and nerdish human kids roast marshmellows over fire together) makes it look like a comic/graphic art book, it's actually (almost) all text and mostly fiction.
