REALMATTER is a literary magazine without literary pretenses. It aims to offer stories, mostly in the form of narrative prose but also including some illustration and photography, in an old-fashioned and visually pleasant format, close to that of the traditional print magazine. At the same time, we want our readers to enjoy this content easily on a variety of devices and in a variety of settings—on the train or on the beach, in the bathtub or in the library. For this reason, each issue of REALMATTER magazine can be read directly on screen on any browser, from a computer or mobile device; it can be printed on paper; or it can be downloaded in PDF form for offline access on electronic readers.
Each issue also has an associated QR code that makes it easy to share it with others if you wish to do so. While REALMATTER is distributed for free, all its content, both text and images, is protected by copyright law. Please do not use it without permission.
All formatting and proofreading are done by the (unpaid) editorial board; please excuse any typos and imperfections.
Enjoy your reading!
