I would recommend this as a 'must have' for all writers!

There are tons of book publishers, magazines and professional organizations to choose from broken down by category and/or or genre.

It also has good cross-reference indexes, allowing you to easily zero in on a particular market.

Due to the nature of the publishing industry, it is impossible for a printed annual reference guide to be up to date. Publishers disappear or reinvent themselves constantly.

If you are looking for a good market guide, try online resources like Duotrope instead.

However, if you are a newbie to publishing your fiction, you may want to browse this book to get a feel for the how-tos of submitting.

This book is a must have for an emerging writer who is trying to get his work out there. This book eliminates the problem of figuring out where to get started. After your story is complete, search the detailed listings to submit to journals and magazines that would be a good match. I wouldn't have known how to go about becoming a writer if it wasn't for this excellent book.

The book contains easy to use listings with keys for important attributes of different markets. It has a good number of listings, although there is at least one well-known fantasy/sci-fi publication that I noticed is not included. It also has good cross-reference indexes, allowing you to easily zero in on a particular market. There is section at the beginning with writing tips that seems out of place and not very helpful. On the whole, it is an excellent resource for anyone unfamiliar with marketing their work. (Note: our use of the book has been limited to the short story markets.)

Great resource for the aspiring writer. However, by publication time, the info as to whether or not publishers are accepting submissions can be out of date. Do yourself a favor and check the publisher website for any updated submission guidelines. Often there is additional information available there that is essential for a successful submission. Or you may miss out on an opportunity, where the book says the publisher isn't accepting submissions, but the website (which is more recent info) indicates submissions are being accepted. I still use this book as a starting point.

Bought it. By the time I got around to sifting through it, the 2010 version came out. Better to search online.

This is an informative and well-organized guide from Amazon for writers or would-be writers looking to sell their stories. Lots of tips, mistakes to avoid and helpful input from writers who have been through the routine. I highly recommend this book and a companion piece; "Magazine Article Writing". I'm off and running!
