I am a lifelong fan of short fiction. I just love short stories, can’t get enough of them. Well, we all know that publishing is a risky business. It’s hard for publishers to get a foothold and keep their role in the marketplace commercially viable. And often times, the publishers that get hit the hardest are those that publish short fiction.
This has always been the case, I think. But it seems to have become even harder for dead tree publishers these days due to the popularity of online publishing. Now we all know that the quality of online magazines is uneven at best. That’s just part of the territory. But I’d like some opinions on who the good guys are. What magazines do you feel publish the best short fiction? Writers, who is the best to work for?
