Short Stories: The UK Magazine Market

I was chatting to a fellow writer at the weekend about the paucity of magazines in the UK that currently publish short stories. Since then, I've done a bit of proper research and found there are nearly 80 mags that publish short fiction. Eighty! That's a lot more than I thought. Of course, it's a mixed bag. Some editors won't accept unsolicited manuscripts, publishing commissioned stories only. Some magazines pay authors very little, if anything. But in between, there are a number of editors who will pay half-decent rates for your work. As ever, it's wise to read a few editions of any magazine before you send in your submission.

Anyway, here's the list:
