2.0 out of 5 stars Save Your Money April 7, 2009
Format:Paperback
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Really Helpful September 9, 2008
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Handy Resource January 1, 2009
Format:Paperback
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.)

4.0 out of 5 stars Great resource! April 8, 2009
By kidlet
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
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 However, by publication time, the info as to whether or not publishers are accepting submissions can be out of date.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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Guide from Amazon June 16, 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
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!
