Top Customer Reviews
Every fiction market imaginable is included. Literary magazines, agents, small circulation, online markets, consumer magazines, book publishers, contests, awards and conferences are all at your fingertips in the 600+ pages of information.
Just as the publishing world is always changing, so are the yearly guides. The 2007 edition contains the complete listings you're familiar with and the type of work represented, contacts, complete contact info and payment terms. But a new section for writers of graphic novels and comics has also been added.
Helpful articles aren't just a bonus in the guide. They're full of information to help you create work that is saleable and solid. Sections include craft and technique, getting published, specialty areas for mystery writers, romance writers, sci fi, fantasy and horror writers as well as the newly added graphic novel and comics writers category.
The Novel & Short Story Writer's Market is in its 26th year. It's an invaluable tool exclusively for fiction writers.
If you're even thinking of publishing your fiction, this guide could be your ticket. All of the listings are 100-percent updated and there's no better way to find the market best suited for your work.
The Resources section at the back of the book included a highly useful glossary of genres, in case you're one of the many confused by the proliferation of sub-categories and markets in this area. Also, on page 544, there was a listing of corporate behemoths and the presses they own. (OK, this info changes frequently, but this will give you a place to start tracing who's really in charge.)
The listings of agents, lit magazines, genre markets, mass market magazines, workshops, prizes was comprehensive enough. (Of course, you'll want to go to their individual websites to check for recent staffing changes and detailed submission guidelines.) I was happy to see a section of online magazines too.
There are lots of lists and indexes sorted so that you can find information quickly. This book is well organized and easy to use.
If you ARE an insider with a long history and lots of literary contacts, you may not find this book as helpful; save your money and go to the websites. But for the rest, I'd recommend this book.
