Beyond the Pulps:
The Slicks, the Digests, the Mystery Mags & On-Line
The Slicks: Non-Mystery Magazines
After the pulps died out, there were few places for short story writers, particularly those of a hard-boiled bent, to sell their wares. Fortunately, there were a few outlets left, mostly digests that, for the most part, published everything from cozies to hardcore noir in the same issue. Suddenly, readers had to work to find the good stuff. Most lasted only a few years, but a handful lasted long enough to have a major impact, and a few are still going strong, with new contenders popping up every now and then, aided greatly with the digital DIY boom of the 1990s onward..
Now everyone can be an author or a writer or a critic or an editor. No skill required.
Several magazines and ezines have attempted to combine non-fiction along with fiction, including reviews and news in the genre. Titles marked in bold are currently being published... I think.
