The Literary Magazine of Fantasy and Terror was a fanzine edited by Phyllis Ann Karr and Jessica Amanda Salmonson and published by The Fellowship of Odysseans in Zenith, Washington, U.S.A..

The first issue of The Literary Magazine of Fantasy and Terror was released in 1973, with three issues following it in that year. Issues 5 and 6 were released in 1974 and one final issue released in 1975. It was a 100 page publication with sadle-stitched binding. 500 numbered copies were released of each issue.

The zine included short stories and verse by authors such as Ruth Berman (No, SH - sf Fanthology, T-Negative), Joseph Payne Brennan (Macabre, Essence), Glen Cook, Phyllis Ann Karr, Gordon Linzner (Space and Time), David Madison, Darrell Schweitzer and the editors, among many others.

Artwork included a reprint of work by Hannes Bok.

Later, in the 1980s, there was a quasi revival of the title as a professional publication.

Jessica Amanda Salmonson began publishing Windhaven in the late 1970s, followed by Naginata in the early 1980s. She went on to assume editorship of Fantasy Macabre in the 1980s with issue 5, and stayed with the publication until the last issue, # 17, in 1996.
