Warren Lapine is known for his publishing efforts, particularly with his first company, DNA Publications, which published a range of magazines including Absolute Magnitude, Dreams of Decadence, Fantastic Stories, Mythic Delirium, The Official KISS Magazine, Science Fiction Chronicle, and Weird Tales, from 1993 to 2007; and a book programme focussing on public domain releases, Wilder Publications, which continued after the collapse of DNA Publications. In 2009 Lapine founded Tir Na Nog Press along with a science fiction / fantasy imprint, Fantastic Books, with freelance editing by Douglas Cohen, Marty Halpern (who has since resigned), Ian Randal Strock, Darrell Schweitzer, and David Truesdale. Ian Randal Strock was then hired full-time as publisher of Fantastic Books. After announcing the re-launch of Fantastic Stories, Lapine decided to purchase Realms of Fantasy, instead. With Realms of Fantasy relaunched under new management, plans were underway to put out Dreams of Decadence. However, in September 2010, Realms of Fantasy was sold to Damnation Books; in November 2010 Fantastic Books was sold to Ian Randal Strock.; and all Dreams of Decadence subscriptions rolled into Realms of Fantasy.
