Any writers? Advice please..

Over the years I've been working a series of short stories that take place in an alternative timeline (diverges in 1912) and goes into several hundred years from now. I've got a few hundred pages done and am nearing a point where I'd like feedback.

Has anyone here tried to publish their stories? If so, where/how?

Part of me just wants to throw it all on Amazon Kindle, make the first story free, charge small amounts for the others and hope for the best. Alternative would be finding an actual publishing agent who would take care of the logistics, be upfront about my cut and publish for me. Thoughts?

Looking forward to the day when I can say, "Oh, yeah, I knew Ken TL back when his most important work was a new script for the Downfall video meme."
