Waylines Magazine was founded by film maker / writer Darryl Knickrehm and writer David Rees-Thomas in October 2012. After a successful Kickstarter campaign, the bi-monthly speculative fiction magazine launched on January 1, 2013 with the Web Edition of Issue 1. It publishes three short speculative fiction stories and streams three short genre films each issue. It also focuses on publishing detailed interviews with the artists of its featured work.
