It’s October, and that means that the Worldbuilding Magazine Transportation issue is out! In the October issue, our friends at the magazine take a close look at the many ways transportation has mattered to society—such as in warfare or delivering messages. Transportation may not be one of those things you start a world with, but it’s still a very important part of any society! So let’s take a look and learn how we can make transportation matter in our own settings. Or just go read it now if you prefer!

What’s inside the Worldbuilding Magazine Transportation issue?

As always, a ton of awesome ideas and inspiration! But in more details, this is what you’ll find in the October issue:

  • Four new worldbuilding articles featuring discussions on worldbuilding with travel and transportation. Plus, five new short stories that continue Emory Glass’ series Thirty-Three Tales of War!
  • An interview with Carolyn Ives Gilman, a historian, museum consultant, and award-nominated author of science fiction and fantasy titles such as Dark Orbit, the Forsaken Series, and most recently Exile’s End.
  • Another interview with Kateryna “Tokkamak” Kosheleva, the illustrator and writer of the in-progress graphic novel For Their Own Good.
  • And another interview with Melissa Matos, author of the soon-to-be-published Song of the Wild, about the setting she has created for her upcoming book!
  • Your questions answered in our Ask Us Anything column, and other free-to-download resources!
  • And last but not least, the winning entries from the World Anvil History Challenge! Yes! You’ll find some of your fellow anvilites (or yourself) in there!
