There, they let you search, sort, and track markets. Below, we're linking to all of the magazines in these long lists, with the number of commendations (P designates "Pushcart," BA, "Best American"). Editing a collection of reprinted stories is not the same as choosing new stories for a magazine or anthology, of course. Nine years later, she would win the Pulitzer Prize and the National Book Award for The Color Purple. “Shifting” is vintage Beattie, a writer better known for her short stories of discontented east coast types than for her novels. (Though Chilly Scenes of Winter is excellent!) Find “Shifting” in The New Yorker Stories. (Or read " Janus " now to tide you over.)

"How a Muzhik Fed Two Officials" (18??) is a piece of sledgehammer satire by Saltykov about two brainless bureaucrats stranded on a desert island who are saved from starvation and toil by a peasant servant.
