Tangent Online 2014 Recommended Reading List


As with previous years, this list is not meant as comprehensive, there being several items we didn't see. As was the case with the last several years we narrowed our focus (with rare exception) to those stories published in professionally paying markets as defined by SFWA. While SFWA changed its pro-market requirements in 2014 to 6c/wd., we will continue to cover those markets paying the former rate of 5c/wd.
