    New to this place so not sure if this is the right place to put this.


    I am looking for somewhere to post some of my fiction.

    A quick scan tells me most fiction communities seem to be completely swamped with One Direction fan fiction and 3rd rate erotica, often at the same time.

    If that's you thing then fine, but I'm looking for something a little bit different.

    My writing is not particularly safe for work and what I'm currently looking to post (and hopefully get some measured feedback on) would probably be best described as a Joss Whedon story with a Warren Ellis sensibility.

    If anyone could recommend a suitable home for this I would appreciate it.

    You might could submit to weaponizer. Some of Whitechapel's own are editors over there and they published the likes of me. I'd recommend reading their stuff anyway... because of the good. You do like good, don't you?

    You need to find somewhere like Duotropes that lists fiction markets (Duotropes charges now, but there are a number of similar sites), submit to online magazines and get paid for your writing.

    Weaponizer is also very good, and they have published my work too.

    Thanks for the endorsements guys. Working full time as a journalist and running a record label mean that Weaponizer updates a LOT less frequently than I'd like these days, and as a paying market, the magazine is stuck at the moment due to a lack of funds. I have *just* enough for a print run, but realistically I need to get fund together for a launch, and for getting copies to vendors on England... But if you submit something I'll look out for it, and will get it up on site as quickly as I can. We're regularly putting up new Flashfics, and we're still running two serials: ELKWOOD by Zach Leverton (cavepunk fantasy) and WEAPON EYES, SIR by Paul S. Grimsley (biopunk espionage thriller). Edited to add: I'm still hoping to get issue 2 of the mag out this year.

    Thanks for the advice.

    Having had a quick google of publications that might take my work, they all seem to be based in the USA.

    Is this where the market is, or am I being useless and missing the UK places?

    Most are, but most are online so it's really a global market. With Paypal the payment situation is generally good.
    If you want to see work in a UK fiction publication Black Static is worth a look.
