Today the board of directors of SFWA voted to add the publisher Prime Books to the list of SFWA qualifying markets. When Prime Books separated from its parent company, Wildside Press, in May 2009, one of the goals which its World-Fantasy winning editor, Sean Wallace cited was to be able to pay his authors SFWA pro-rates.
Prime Books has been publishing award-winning fiction in collections, anthologies and novels. They have published SFWA authors and editors such as John Joseph Adams, Ekaterina Sedia, and Catherynne M. Valente.
Novels and short fiction published in anthologies with Prime Books from May, 2009 forward are now qualifying sales for membership with SFWA. Congratulations to Sean, the entire editorial staff at Prime Books and their writers!
