Choice Review

The best-known source of marketing information for writers, WM provides contact information for editors and agents, interest areas of particular presses, and informative articles for new and experienced authors. The format has changed little in the last decade (CH, Mar'94), with articles about getting published and the business of writing preceding a listing of book and magazine markets, but agents comprise more entries than in previous editions. Entry content is derived from questionnaires; some respondents are excluded at their request or for lack of timely response. Although the 1994 edition claimed "4000 places to sell your [writing]" and the 2004 edition claims "8,000+ books and magazine editors who buy what you write," the actual number of entries throughout the decade have been comparable, hovering around 4,000. To keep such stasis, sections and individual entries have been shifted to the Web edition (e.g., small press, greeting cards and gifts, syndicates) or dropped altogether (subsidy/royalty publishers). Since small and literary presses seem chief among the changes, be sure to supplement with Len Fulton's International Directory of Little Magazines and Small Presses (39th ed., 2003) or Alternative Publishers of Books in North America, ed. by Byron Anderson (5th ed., 2002). ^BSumming Up: Recommended.
