There hasn't been too much on the market front of late. I expect it's because Summer's winding down and people are trying to use up as much of their free time outside as they can before cold weather sets in. Hopefully things will pick up after school starts.
One thing I've been really disappointed in lately is the lack of straight up crime markets, even of the non-paying variety. Another thing that troubles me is the lack of anthology calls for mystery writers. I keep hearing that anthologies don't sell, but the sci-fi/fantasy and horror fields don't seem to be having that problem because I'm seeing plenty of anthology calls in those fields. Which makes me wonder, is it because all those genres support their short story writers and editors with awards in all those fields? I know none of the mystery awards have nominees for collections, anthologies, or novella length fiction. Makes you wonder what the problem is.
And in case you haven't heard Otto Penzler has collected together 90 flash crime stories in an anthology titled "Kwik Krimes". Happy to see so many online authors listed among the greats in the genre.
Also the 2013 edition of The Best American Mystery Stories has hit the streets with one story from Needle Magazine by Tom Barlow published and two others, by Jen Conley and Timothy Friend listed as "other distinguished stories". Also listed in this category is a story by Dave White which appeared in "Protectors: Stories to Benefit PROTECT".
Congrats to all the writers who made it into these two anthologies!!
