I had the idea about a month ago to find a magazine to submit a story to. I only had one that was complete so I submitted to a Spec-Fic magazine on on-line. While I waited for a reply I continued searching due to a feeling and accidentally stumbled across The Maps End. I searched the sight and found that a lot of the links were dead and went to "site for sale" pages. I was a bit disappointed, so I sent the site an email in fear that I found the site too late. The reply that I got put my mind at ease and a link to The Anomaly was attached. Now here I am. I hope to meet some new people with similar literary interest. God Bless.
If by literary interest, you mean speculative fiction, then I think there might be a few folks bumping around who are into that.

Yup, looks like you found the right place. All the WhereTheMapEnds stuff migrated to the Marcher Lord Press website.
MLP is a POD publishing operation that specializes in Christian Spec Fic. Jeff, the publisher and guardian angel of the Anomaly, is good people. The MLP site has a lot of good stuff.

Matt, I can speak personally for the Cross and the Cosmos for short stories. At least, I should anyway, I started it! Welcome to the Anomaly! I hope that your stay is a good one since, er, there's no way back out.

I reviewed some of the stories that were published in The Cross and the Cosmos; maybe that could help you get an idea about the kind of content that T2C has been looking for. I posted the reviews in the Space Bar section of this forum, but last month I republished them on a blog. Everything posted in April on the blog is one of my original reviews. (That's a link in the previous sentence; the color scheme on this forum makes links hard to see sometimes.)
