The largest imprint in the SF book biz is Tor. On the short-fiction side, Tor offers free ezine Tor.com.(*) Too many great genre magazines are gone (If, Amazing Stories, Galaxy, Jim Baen's Universe ...) so it's great to see a new SF short-fiction venue thrive. See (from genre news source SF Scope) "Tor.com celebrates its fifth birthday in style."
