    My boyfriend is a science fiction author and i am writing on behalf of him wondering if you guys know how to place an advertisement in a magazine. He is particularly looking for science fiction magazines to advertise his books. If you have a website that you can recommend us to that has steps in doing that, feel free to place it in your reply. Thanks in advance.

    Contact the Editor of the Magazine. But it'll be costly.

    I never had this problem. The best bet is to contact blogs geared toward Black Sci-Fi. If anything he can just write a short story for them and put in his information how he is an author. As for Magazines, I don't now recall any with free advertisement.
