The World SF Blog

Speculative Fiction from Around the World

Short Fiction Summaries, 2009: Analog

Prompted by a conversation with Jeff Ford, we thought we’d take a look at what stories have been published in 2009 from people who could be termed world SF writers. And next up: Analog Magazine.







Well, that was fun!

  1. I think you should try looking at the semi-pro magazines like Crossed Genres.

    • It’s not really semi-pro, though… it pays, what, $10 a story? There are several small publications with more of a focus on international SF – Expanded Horizons is another good one – but the problem is, there are literally hundreds of small publications and only a handful of professional ones.

      However if anyone wants to write a summary for the blog of some of these, I’d be happy to post it…

      • Yep, it pays $10 per story.

        Crossed Genres is also a young magazine but it has good intentions.

        So, for sf/f writers, the real big break is to get published in the Big Brothers Of SF/F (Asimov, Analog etc)? For sf/f writers who get published in small publications, they are not considered as real sf/f writers? I think there seems to be this distinction here and it’s something that turns a lot of people away from sf/f.

  2. And a summary for the blogs of some of these small publications would be good. 🙂
