Any recommendations for a good fantasy magazine that will publish short stories about vampires?

Weird Tales is one, but I can't find my list right now.  Go to a search engine and search, that's how I did it. I think I put in Fantasy Magazines and maybe Horror magazines. They popped right up.

Yeah do a search for fantasy magazines, and then read the submission guidelines very carefully, vampires is a very heavily done concept at the moment so they might not be accepting that genre atm. BUT they should state that on the guidelines, if not then send it in.

Also read a sample of the magazine before submitting, some have certain styles and the more your work fits that style the more likely they will accept it.

GOODLUCK. 

And you are a writer, you are meant to ask way tooo many questions :)
