Neil Gaiman's American Gods is godpunk at its finest. Odin, or rather, Mr. Wednesday stokes the fires of war between the gods of the modern age and the gods of old. He hires the reluctant ex-convict, Shadow Moon as his bodyguard. Shadow is immediate...

  • I just finished All the Birds in the Sky by Charlie Jane Anders. I loved it. Anyone else read it? It had mixed reviews on Goodreads. I can understand why, but it was just the right texture for me.

    I was wondering, for those trying to publish their work in magazines/journals/anthos, do you have a list of the top places you'd love to submit? If so, where?
    One of my top dream subs is with Shimmer Magazine. I did try a submission there once, but it wasn't "shimmery" enough - their words, not mine. I love the imagination and weirdness of the work there.
    Anyone else?

      Now that you mention Clarkesworld, it's one I've longed to get my work into too, Mike. (Sigh... they all feel so out of reach... the SFWA markets)

I always like the con panels with the magazine publishers and they all agree discovering new stuff and new writers is a point of pride among themselves. No need to sell yourself short.

      SFWA list is somewhat short though. I've been actively trying to find new places to submit to but for me, it's been a bit tough. Not a lot of places really seem to want the in-between stuff I write and I'm not exactly the most prolific writer what with two kids and a day job. Things like the Submission Grinder help a lot with finding and vetting a market.

      I submitted to Asimov's recently. I must check my email a thousand times a day! lol I love Clarkesworld and Apex so much. Also, Beneath Ceaseless SkiI submitted to Asimov's recently. I must check my email a thousand times a day! lol I love Clarkesworld and Apex so much. Also, Beneath Ceaseless Skies. Super cool on meeting Neil Clarke. I mean, I know they're just people, but I get all noodle-kneed at people like that.
      I'm at Miscon in Missoula this weekend, and spoke to David Farland and Randy Henderson. Both times, I had to go sit down for a bit after. Claire Eddy is here, and I haven't been brave enough to approach her. Mostly because I've nothing interesting to say. I mean, I'm querying and Tor is one of the best houses in my opinion, but beyond that what would I say? Ack.
      SFWA is a goal for me, too. But...I'm also still interested in winning The Writers of the Future contest, so I can't be in too much of a hurry! That's what I tell myself, anyway!

I'm feeling that way about my middle grader fantasy work because there are only like six paying markets, and they vary in style. Sure, I could develop them into books, but that's not what I necessarily want to be doing. *shrug* I'll have to think about it.
      I think weirder is getting more popular, so that's good. Of course, there are different kinds of weird.
