A: We aspire to read everything, and get caught up in the world of independent literary imprints. This can be from bigger names like Nightboat books, Split Lip, or TBQ, to more obscure or lesser-known orgs like SPF Lit Mag, t4t project, stone of madness press, etc. The latter group have been kind enough to publish some of my work, and The Decadent Review has been a home for much of my redaction writing--which is not in manuscript form. But we don't ignore the world, and keep an eye on voices from outlets such as Ploughshares, Poetry, and Black Lawrence Press. Sybil originally only published for San Marcos locals, but has become more widely recognised in part by efforts of publications such as The Bitchin' Kitchen.

A: Horror Tree's Trembling With Fear editorial team loves all forms of speculative fiction, from horror to fantasy to science fiction. We also have multiple editors to truly embrace every form. We're primarily supporters of indie presses, so publishers such as Cemetery Dance Publications, Eerie River Publishing, Crystal Lake Publishing, Raw Dog Screaming Press, Brigids Gate Press, and Black Spot Books. As an ongoing market, we have nothing but love for others that have stood the test of time, such as Electric Spec Magazine, The Quiet Ones, Escape Pod, and Apex Magazine.

A: Terrain, Ecotone, Vox Populi, Mudlark, The Commons, Manhattain Review, Adroit Journal, Plume, as well as some of the usual suspects (Georgia Review, Paris Review, New England Review, and so on).

A: Copper Canyon Press, Milkweed Editions, Grey Wold Press, Similar Literary Presses

A: Prairie Voices

A: Guernica, Afreada, Wired, Lithub.

Dr. Ainehi Edoro, Editor-in-Chief of Brittle Paper, 15 December 2022

A: How does one choose among many wonderful possibilities? I adore Space and Time Magazine because it delivers wondrous tales, poetry, and author insights. Wyldblood Magazine always fascinates me, and I love Orion's Belt, Flash Frog, New Flash Fiction Review, and—ah! I could keep going. I admire editors whose vision and brand resonate in every story.
