I've posted a new page here on my blog that I hope will help some folks sell some stories! I'm also including the info in this post.
There are plenty of good sites out there listing paying markets for fantasy and science fiction short stories but most of the time that's all they are, lists. I put this table together for my own reference and I'd like to share it with you. I make absolutely no promises that the information is up to date or accurate (although I will try my best). Please see individual websites for specific information. If you have any corrections, addition, and/or comments, please feel free to email me at adamg73(at)juno(dot)com.
If there's a blank cell that means I couldn't find that bit of information. C/W means cents per word.
