Market Sightings

Dark Matter -- SF/F/H Paying Market Sightings

Many pro- and semi-pro Science Fiction/Fantasy/Horror short story markets, for various reasons, have a difficult time keeping to a regular publishing schedule. Sometimes it's hard for writers to know whether a market is even still in business -- sort of like dark matter in the cosmos (it may be out there, but we can't see it). This page is thus an attempt to let folks track "sightings" of new issues of the not-entirely-regular markets. Please report any newer sightings than are already recorded.

Note that we only track markets that pay authors -- there are too many "small press" markets (no pay/pay in copies) to contemplate tracking.

Well known, very regular markets have been omitted precisely because they are regular -- So no Asimov's, Analog, etc.

Remember, you may have to reload this page if you've already looked at it. (Last update: Fri Dec 30 20:15:04 MST 2016)

Please report problems to Andrew Burt.

Note that a missing/outdated entry below doesn't mean the market definitely has not published! Rather, the only valid conclusion is that a recent sighting means that market was recently 'alive'.
