Fiction writers who don't have the newest edition of Novel and Short Writer's Market are missing out on the latest industry needs, submission guidelines and in-depth guidance on the writing craft. This year, there are over 600 magazine markets and more than 500 book publishers packed in between the covers.
But writers have also come to rely on the in-depth articles. From Walter Mosley to Alice Sebold, authors share their expertise on subjects like getting on the bestseller list and connecting through words. Experts also share their insight on graphic novels, strengthening your manuscript and even the daily discipline of sitting in your chair to write.
Special sections in addition to the marketing listings include:
* Personal Views
* Craft & Technique
* Getting Published
* For Mystery Writers
* For Romance Writers
* For Science Fiction/Fantasy & Horror Writers
When you've finished reading the articles, find a market for your writing whether you're looking for online publications, literary magazines, consumer magazines or book publishers. You'll also find extensive listings of writing contests and conferences for the year.
Novel & Short Story Writer's Market is the best investment you can make in your writing career. If you're a fiction writer who wants to see your work in print, you need a copy of the current year's guide in your personal library.

As a published novelist and fiction writer, I recommend The Novel & Short Story Writer's Market for writers who have one or more finished manuscripts and are ready to plunge into the world of publishing. The market entries, though not exhaustive, are comprehensive enough, and the detailed information within each provides enough guidance when deciding where to submit. You won't find every agent listed here, nor will you find every literary magazine and book publisher. However, I've never seen another, more far-reaching source than this series.
You will have to buy a new edition every year since markets change constantly. Fortunately, the editors add new articles and interviews to make the purchase less painful. This time you'll find a much-needed article on scams (aspiring writers are prime targets) and how to identify them. Other new features include "Breaking into Graphic Novels" and a short course on "Craft and Technique." The interviews are always informative, if a little short, and provide ample inspiration to those struggling to get published. As always, you'll find a run-down on manuscript mechanics and how to submit your work.
In recent editions, the editors have realized that novelists can't rely solely on listings since many publishers only consider manuscripts from agents, so they have a solid section with information on agents. Short story writers will page through this book more than most, since they must submit their work themselves.
This market guide is an excellent place for the new writer to start. Once you have an agent, or stop writing short stories, this guide will be less vital to your career.

Having started to seriously write short stories, I bought a copy of this reference on the suggestion of a novelist I correspond with. It is a useful reference, indexed by subject matter of the stories. The entries for the different publishers are short, but generally contain enough information to indicate what content publishers are looking for. Address details are provided for obtaining additional information from the publishers. From the payment levels indicated (at 1954 levels, if that high), and the low percentage of manuscripts actually accepted for publication, writers (like artists and musicians) are advised to keep their day jobs. Short story writing is best approached as a hobby rather than a career.

As the reviewers have already stated, this book is a MUST for those who are serious about getting there work published. There are also bonus essays and lessons from a few writing vets at the beginning, providing tried and true methods of good storytelling. The sheer amount of information is astounding, and the possibilities are many whatever your genre or format.
one tip though, this 2004 is the newest addition, and I would not recommend buying it until you are ready to publish.... The time it takes to finish your novel and be ready to publish may be until the next volume comes out!

If you have easy access to the internet (which is a good possibility since you're here now) I would suggest you consider either the writer's market online edition, or simply go to the website and register. I enjoy the paper edition for thumbing through for ideas and for the special articles. I really appreciate the online version for all the extra features that are available to help keep me organized. If you're serious about getting published, the submission tracker is a exactly what you need.
