Definitions and Explanation of Listing Criteria

This page defines a webzine as an active magazine listed by the SFWA and/or Ralan which is presented on a website and has no obstructions to reading and reviewing the fiction on its webpages. (Some otherwise qualifying webzines are not listed due to judgment calls regarding the zines’ having a scope even narrower than science fiction, fantasy, and/or horror due to generic, regional, or other limiting criteria.) These webzines are divided into “pro” and “other” groups. If a zine appears as an SFWA-qualifying market or in Ralan’s Pro Markets, then it’s a Pro Zine (and if I can’t find it listed by both, that’s noted). If it appears in Ralan’s Semipro, Pay, or Token Markets then it is an Other Zine (and is a “Pay” zine unless otherwise noted).

Within the above criteria, I try to list all pro, semi-pro, and pay zines. (If you feel one is missing, contact me.) Token markets need a special reason to be listed (such as GigaNotoSaurus being an exception to the above “narrower scope” clause because it covers short fiction at underrepresented longer lengths).
