Writing Resources

The following resources may be useful to you.

www.ralans.com
This site is full of useful info for science fiction, fantasy, and spec fiction writers. Here one will find markets for books, anthologies, contests, and all levels of short story magazines from zero pay to professional rates, as well as a study of market response times. Frequently updated. Highly recommended.

www.spicygreeniguana.com
Another site listing large quantities of publishers for both print and web medium. Categories are: Prozines, Semiprozines, and Small Press. Not updated as frequently as ralans, but the format of publisher listings is easier on the eyes than ralans.
