    [E-zine] Intergalactic Medicine Show

    Hey, I was browsing through the book store and found a book with stories but its also a online magazine called "Intergalactic Medicine Show" It's for sci-fi/fantasy and they pay $.6 cents a word and they keep the story for a year but after that you can re-sell it.
    Does anyone have more info on this or heard of it. I'm guessing it would have to be legit if a big authors name is on it? Right?
    Ok, let me know what you think.

    Yep, it's legitimate. A sale there also counts towards SFWA membership: http://www.sfwa.org/org/qualify.htm#Q5

    It's legit, but note -- they have pretty strong limitations on acceptable content. Supposedly to be YA friendly, actually with a serious slant on what that means. So check the guidelines carefully.

    Ah, now the thread title's been fixed and it's not nearly so funny. Just ignore the crazy man

    I've submitted to IGMS a couple of times (both rejected) and have another story with them right now. It's likely slated for rejection too due to the YA slant (which could be cured with a slight revision of a few words). They're very legit, as in SFWA credit material.

    It's Orson Scott Card's publication and he's one of the Big Names in SF.

    Thank you all. I will look into to it more. Does anyone know where to find other online stories to submit to? Perferly Urban Fantasy?

    Try Duotrope to start. There's also plenty of information about markets in the Short Fiction subforum.

    Sorry to resurrect an old thread--but does anyone know if IGMS sends auto-responses to acknowledge submissions? I subbed about 5 weeks ago. I know not to query because it hasn't been 3 months, but I never received a confirmation of receipt. After having a sub fail with another market, I'm just feeling paranoid.

    I just sent them something, Amanda. I'll post if I receive a submission notice. At least they did respond to my initial email query, to give me the submission requirements.
