Well, after a long time

I submitted a short to Asimov. Will be shocked if they take it...but hey, why not?

2. Azimov's?

These guys?

It would be pretty cool to get your name on the cover, if this is representative of their art work.

Best of luck.

4. Always start at the top

That's still the best advice.

Good luck!

5. To finish this I heard

at one time, start at the top, make a list of ten markets and submit as soon as one rejects it, to the next

It will take five years (average) but always have something in the pipeline.

6. Well, as I like to say--you can't win if you don't enter!

Good luck--will hold positive thoughts for you. I entered a story in the 2012 Writers Digest Shorts contest, doubtless won't make the cut (have done this before) but rejection is a part of our writer's life, right? Gotta keep the faith!
