The Submission Grinder, milling your submissions into something useful

Sherlock Holmes Mystery Magazine
Wildside Press

Though we do feature Sherlock Holmes pastiches and an occasional parody, we are actually more interested in reader-solvable mysteries, crime stories, even occasional conte cruelles and ghost stories (in the fashion of the old London Mystery Magazine.) We tend not to do SF, but even here we have made at least one exception if the story is a mystery in the broader sense of the term.
