I love reading short stories. I don't ever have enough time to read all of the short stories that I'd like to read (or novels). Although I'm always happy to read an anthology or collection, I love reading science fiction magazines. I continue to submit my stories to these markets as well, and look forward to appearing in the pages of these magazines.
A Selection of Science Fiction Markets
With so many science fiction publications, online and in print, there are many options to publish your stories. This isn't an exhaustive listing of markets, just my picks of markets where I'd like to see my stories published.

Asimov's Science Fiction
Asimov's Science Fiction has topped my list of target markets for many years.
Each issue typically features many of my favorite authors, e.g., Kristine Kathryn Rusch, Allen M. Steele, and others.
Asimov's publishes a range of science fiction stories up to 20,000 words long. They don't usually publish stories shorter than 1,000 words. Many award-winning and year's best stories have come from its pages.

Analog Science Fiction and Fact
Right along with Asimov's, Analog has long been a favorite magazine. I'd love to have stories appear in Analog.
Analog publishes science fiction where the science or technology is integral to the story's plot.
Another favorite of mine, Clarkesworld Magazine publishes both science fiction and fantasy magazine by a range of terrific authors.

The Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction
I started submitting to MF&SF back when I first started writing stories when the magazine was under the editorship of Kristine Kathryn Rusch.
