My first love has always been sci-fi, but I tend to write more episodic style than in one big book.

So here's what I've thought about doing: submitting my segments as separate stories or serials (the former being preferable) to Asimov's, Analog, or a similar sci-fi magazine.

Than, with the final segment, having a notation that the entire compilation will be available in electronic and print formats across various websites, through SmashWords, CreateSpace (print), and possibly Lulu.com (again print, since I don't think CS allows for a hardback edition).

Anyways, just wondering if this seems like a good strategy or if I'd be better off just waiting until I've got it completed. I figure this way I allow myself time to complete each segment rather than being forced to develop the entire story right off the bat.
