Anthologies

If your work is accepted for inclusion in an anthology by one of the major publishers, you will usually receive payment and a free copy of that anthology. If you are accepted by one of the Small Presses (who cannot afford a payment), you will still usually receive a free copy of the anthology.

There is nothing wrong with selling anthologies to contributors as long as those who are in that business do not imply:

Note . . .

Too often claims made in an attempt to persuade clients to buy copies of anthologies are not genuine. In those cases it simply becomes a dishonest attempt to hoodwink gullible members of the public.

However, if you are content to pay the price of an anthology to see a single item in print (for that is what it amounts to - paying for publication) then by all means buy a copy.
