Fantasy Magazine is #1

....on the ra_log

As a maintainer, I get to look at the tags by usage if I so choose. Do you want to know which pubs get the most traffic from us?

In order of submissions reported by RALOGers, the top 10 (since March 2008):
1) Fantasy Magazine* (56)
2) Strange Horizons* (47)
3) A.S.I.M. (41)
4) F&SF* (38)
5) Lone Star Stories (37)
6) JBU* (36)
7) Clarkesworld* (34)
7) Weird Tales (34)
9) IGMS* (26)
9) Beneath Ceaseless Skies (26)
11) Asimov's* (25)
11) Abyss & Apex (25)

So, these are the mags our RALOGers favor. How very interesting.

Some other interesting points from the list...

SFWA 'approved' markets not in the top ten:
13) Realms of Fantasy* (20)
22) WOTF* (10)
Analog* (7)
Chizine* (7)
Pedestal* (7) (SBT just added one)
Brutarian* (5)
Cosmos* (4)
Cemeterey Dance* (3)

Some interesting anthologies (various iterations, though)
Clockwork Phoenix (15)
Sword & Sorceress (13)
Polyphony (8)
Wolfsongs (2)
Warrior Wisewoman (1)
(I'd heard that CP got a gazillion subs last time...this seems to bear that out)

*SFWA Pro Approved Market. Yes, I'm putting one on Fantasy now, since they have their info turned in to SFWA. This doesn't, sadly, retroactively affect the stories I've sold there.
