Three quick ones for you while I marinate my Hugo post.
Tor.com will be closing to short fiction submissions on January 7th, so if you want to submit there, you’d better do it today or tomorrow. One of their readers has confirmed that all slush that hits the pile before closing will be read and considered as expected. (Guidelines)
Meanwhile, Apex has reopened for fiction (but not poetry) submissions. I’ve seen no word as to how long this submission period will last. (Guidelines)
Finally, you really ought to consider supporting Fireside Fiction, publishers of, among other stories, Sunil Patel’s delightful “Sally the Psychic Alligator.” It would be a real shame both for readers and writers to lose Fireside. Information on how to support Fireside can be found here.
