Just a quick note to report that Compelling Science Fiction is now one of the few magazines worldwide that is considered a professional "Qualifying Market" by the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America:
SFWA is a wonderful organization that supports authors in a huge number of ways (our own publishing contract is adapted from SFWA's model magazine contract). SFWA also hosts the annual Nebula Awards. While we have always paid professional rates, this recognition means that our published authors will find it much easier to use their publication in our magazine to meet SFWA membership requirements, because we have already been vetted.
