Wasn't the Amazon Short program cancelled or at least sharply curtailed?

I'm looking at the main page right now and it look to be alive and kicking. Pretty interesting, even. Forty-nine cents a story looks like a good deal that's cheap to customers and can bring some good extra bucks and publicity to the authors. I'm very tempted.

Hmmmm, it's only 49 cents and I heard you pocket 20 cents.  It seems very tempting to me.

I hope that isn't true, because it sounds like a fantastic idea. The short story market seems rather depressing. It was already drying up for horror/speculative when I was a kid, but there were still some decent markets like Twilight Zone, Horror Show, and others. I went to Borders the other day and was dismayed at the lack of magazines out there for this sort of fiction....I'm curious, do mags like Redbook (Stephen King published in mags like this back in the 70s) still publish good fiction? I mean, where are the markets? Zines?

Well, of course F&SF, Asimov's, and Weird Tales are still published but a lot of spec is online. Publications like Oscar Scott Card's Intergalactic Medicine Show, Strange Horizons, and Jim Baen's Universe are the highest paying markets in short spec fiction. And there are a lot of smaller and less pretigious publications as well.

Orson Scott Card is one of my favorites. I'll have to check that out. Thanks for the heads up.
