Phantastes is a portuguese zine edited by Telmo Pinto and Tiago Gama of "non-limited fantastic fiction and science fiction". Written entirely in portuguese, it focuses on publishing fiction originally written in Portuguese (from Portugal or other Portuguese-speaking countries) along with fiction from other countries (preferentially non-anglophonous countries). So far, two issues have been published.

Phantastes #1 (Winter 2005)

The first issue of Phantastes, with only twelve pages, whose «Púlpito» (in English: «Pulpit»; a section reserved for small biographies of people who contributed to the fantastic or to science fiction) was occupied by Fritz Leiber; another section, Ângulos, dedicated to cinema, was inaugurated by Manuel Freire's opinion of Spielberg's "The War of the Worlds". The dutch artist Frank Koster did the cover.
