It seems to be getting harder and harder for writers to find a place where they can actually get paid for their work, especially short fiction. In the 1940s and 50s, there were a whole slew of magazines that writers could submit stories to, and get paid a reasonably good word-rate for. These days, the very idea that a writer might expect to be paid seems to be treated with outrage by many readers.

The internet has certainly made distribution of one's work easier, but I'm not personally convinced that it's actually improved the lot of the author.
