  2. The Write Club is going to be awesome this year. I was posting about anthologies and short stories today, and I really should have included a link to over here so people who are interested would have a list at their fingertips.

  7. Hey Shannon,

    I always appreciate your links. Of course, I never submit to them because it wouldn't be fair on the rest if I entered.

    Have a good one, Shannon.

    Gary :)

  8. Horror Tree is a neat name for an author site. I wish I still wrote flash fiction so I could submit to many of these, but I don't have the time right now.

  10. Uncanny Magazine has also reopened briefly, for SF/F fiction, paying 8 cents a word. They close on the 29th, but I can't recommend subbing to them enough. They're doing amazing work.

    1. Uncanny is a magazine I'd love to be published in some day. I missed the window since I didn't have anything that fit. Next time!
