Every month more and more quality fiction is available online. This month I limited my search to science fiction and I still found more than twenty stories from markets that are paying their authors. If you know of any quality science fiction short stories that were published online in November that I have not listed here, please add them in the comments.

We also had two new online publications provided us with fiction in November:
- Buckets of Light by Dylan Fox in Science in My Fiction and The Bleeding and the Bloodless by Ruth Nestvold in Giganotosaurus (12,000 words!)
- In November there were also several stories available at both Expanded Horizons and at Daily Science Fiction.
The online fiction community has always been active and it is great to see authors being remunerated for their efforts at an increasing number of online venues. We can help support this trend by dropping by these online magazines and reading their excellent stories. These stories are free, like the heat from the distant stars that warm all those habitable planets that are out there, waiting for us.
