YBSF Honorable Mentions

I like to track several different parameters on different markets (especially periodical markets) to guage their relative visibility.  One of the things I follow is the frequency with which stories from that market appear in the “honorable mentions” appendix of Gardner Dozois’s Year’s Best Science Fiction collection. There are a few hundred stories in that Appendix, but stories appear more frequently from some markets than from others.

Since YBSF for 2007 came out this month, I just now completed my tally.  Note that I only counted them once, so I may easily be off by one or two, and that I did not include (what I thought were) anthologies (except for Writers of the Future, which is a lot like a periodical in some ways).
