Magazines/Fanzines/anthologies

Postby Nyarlathotep » Fri Sep 26, 2008 3:01 am UTC

Back in the days of my youth, I would religiously read Marion Zimmer Bradley's "Fantasy Magazine" and "Sword and Sorceress". Fantasy Magazine actually taught me a lot about how to properly write plot and character, how to show and not tell, and other important things about writing fiction.

Unfortunately, Marion Zimmer Bradley died, and with her died both the magazine and S&S.

I've found myself once again wanting to read short fiction magazines, but I can't bloody find any. I'm wondering if the internets just killed all the print pulps (which would be very unfortunate - how the hell is a budding writer supposed to get a start without the pulps?!)

So does anyone here have a favourite rag, or an annual anthology, that you can recommend? Bonus points if they take amateur submissions; I'm lookin for a gig ^_^

ǣttrynne ord and ealde swurd,
þā heregeatu þe ēow æt hilde ne dēah.

One of the painful things about our time is that those who feel certainty are stupid, and those with any imagination and understanding are filled with doubt and indecision - BR
