Updated list of paying spec fiction short story markets: April 2015

Here are some new / updated paying spec fiction short story markets, as of April 12, 2015. Sorry that I have been delayed in posting updates–I messed up and won a writing contest, the Pikes Peak Writers Zebulon Fiction Contest, for my mythica novel Ragnarök Willie.  So I’ve been rather busy getting that novel dialed in for querying. A good problem to have, but a tad stressful and all-consuming.
