    The Opinion Guy / Golden Acorn Press (Seth Crossman)

    I was thinking of submitting a short story to http://theopinionguy.com/page4.html

    I've never submitted to this publication before. Does anybody know anything about them?

    The site's a bit of a mess (two sets of every page), but once one finds the updated home page (http://theopinionguy.com/), things get better. Been around a few years, pays 1.4/word on acceptance (based on their preferred length of <5K), with aspirations to become a SFWA-qualifying market. Print editions through Lulu.

    Decent, IMHO.

    I've submitted to OG's Speculative Fiction before (and was rejected). They're selective about what they take, have been publishing for awhile and the editing is clean (based on reading the back issues).

    I haven't heard anything bad about them. By all accounts, they are what it says on the tin: a small semi-pro who've been around a little while.

    Same boat as Polenth. Occasionaly I've gotten some helpful commentary along with my rejection, always very professional. My boyfriend was the cover artist for Issue 25 (July 2010) and says he was paid on time and everything went smoothly.

    Announced in May '12 that Issue #36 would be their last. No sign the issue was published, however.

    ETA: Parent Golden Acorn is also inactive (http://goldenacornpress.com/).
