'''Enchanted Times''' was first published in 2009.  It is an ongoing series of A5 (/half-size) zines written by [[Su Mwamba]], featuring revisionist short story versions of traditional fairy tales and other related features.  Later issues feature guest editorials and artwork by additional writers and artists working within the re-told fairy tale genre.
 
-
The ''Enchanted Times Mini'' zine is released at random intervals between issues, featuring previews of and alternative perspectives on the stories to be featured in the next full-size edition.  The short stories/flash fiction tend to veer from the traditional happy ending while the supplementary features and ''Mini'' editions are of a more light-hearted nature.
 
-
 
-
The ''Enchanted Times'' has also spawned a number of additional related mini-zines including ''[[Once Upon a Haiku]]'' and the ''[[Goblin Market]] Coupon Book'' (featuring fictional ads & offers from ''Enchanted Times'' sponsors).
