The Most Prominent Science Fiction and Fantasy Magazines

Eric Schwitzgebel

In 2014, as a beginning writer of science fiction or speculative fiction, with no idea what magazines were well regarded in the industry, I decided to compile a ranked list of magazines based on awards and "best of" placements in the previous ten years. Since people seemed to find it useful or interesting, I have been updating annually.  This page contains links to each year's list.  Follow the links, also, for further information on my aims and methods.
