I just posted a couple of updates to the Foreign Market List, most notably a change in the pay rate and planned closure for the Dutch mag / anthology, Pure Fantasy.
If you know of any updates to any foreign language speculative fiction market, please send me a note here.

I've posted a bunch of updates to my Foreign Market List, so check them out if you're a writer interested in submitting to foreign language (i.e., non-English) short fiction markets.

My novelette "Scream Angel," which won the Aurora Award in 2004 for best short fiction, has been selected for the annual FantAstika 2010-2011 Almanac by the Human Library Foundation in Bulgaria. "Scream Angel" was first published in Bulgarian in the magazine,Terra Fantastika, in 2005 (see cover at left).
The story will be one of twelve stories included in the almanac, along with about thirty pieces of non-fiction. The FantAstika Almanac is "an annual 400-page publication dedicated to interesting (and possibly human-evolving) events in SF, mostly in Bulgaria but also around the world." The anthology will be published in both print and ebook formats.
This marks the fourteenth sale for "Scream Angel" and its eleventh translation.

The 2010 edition of the SFWA Handbook ("The Business Side of of Writing, By Writers, For Writers") has now been published, containing my updated article on "Selling to Foreign Language Markets." The article contains the same information that I maintain here on my website, outlining my recommended approach for reselling your short fiction to non-English language markets around the world. My approach, of course, leverages the Foreign-language Market List (FML) that I maintain here as well. SFWA, for those who don't know, is the Science Fiction & Fantasy Writers of America, an organization that aims at supporting professional SF&F writers. Despite the name, its membership includes writers outside of the US. SFWA membership criteria include at least two sales to professional markets that meet SFWA criteria.
