Neil Clarke, Editor-in-Chief and Publisher of Clarkesworld Magazine, recently posted his annual analysis of the state of the field of F/SF/H short fiction. He points to BCS as a new market of note and mentions our placing as runner-up for the storySouth’s Million Writers Award for the Best New Online Magazine of 2008. Thanks very much!
I agree with Neil that online markets are the most vibrant part of the field these days and will be in the days to come. I do worry that no one has yet come up with a great business model for online fiction magazines, and that that financial connundrum may keep other folks from starting their own magazines. But perhaps something will come along to change that, the way the iPod changed online music. We’ll see!
