The state of the short genre fiction market

Via friends of the blog Cirsova and SFFaudio, a historical point of reference for the short fiction market, another piece of the puzzle of why the book market is what it is right now.

Weird Tales was usually a monthly, and if we adjust for population growth, 50k a month in the pulp era would be something like 150k to 175k per month. Can you even imagine a popular short story magazine putting up those kind of sales?
