Question about

So, I'm a critically-acclaimed novelist, fictionist, and poet. I have not even the beginning of a clue as to who to query at for short fiction for their website.

Short is a relative term for TOR. I think they sale more 200k+ word novels than any other publisher I know of.

Tor is the largest SF/F publisher in the world. They also have a wonderful website, full of treats and goodies.

Look over at their website, Anonymous,, and you'll see lots of awesome short stories - not all of them by Tor authors!

I particularly recommend the Swirsky, story, though all are very solid.

I want to submit short stories to that website. I don't know how.

I'm almost willing to bet cash money it's in invite only market, but if you have any way to contact Patrick Nielsen Hayden you could probably ask. John Scalzi is also pretty good about communicating through email, so you might ask him as well.

I might ask around more formal-like. We'll see what I find out. I had assumed it was a "Tor author only" thing until Swirsky's story.

Admittedly, if she's not a Tor author, it's only a matter of time. She's hella good. However, it got my brain churning and wondering because people seem to think I'm not too shabby on a good day with the wind at my back.
