There is the grand daddy of them all, Locus -- I'm assuming you've at least joined SFWA and signed up for Locus? And the Sci-Fi and Fantasy Writer's Market is a pretty major resource as well.

Do not dismiss the "Contributor copy" small print publications -- it's a great way to build up a resume. In fact, Stephen King talks about how this very subject in "On Writing".

You HAVE read it by now, right?

I would say that my three books I consider required reading for all aspiring SF&F writers are:

"On Writing" by King
"How to write Fantasy & Science-Fiction" by Card
"Elements of Style" by Strunk and White
