Nope From Asimov's

A 68 day "Dear Contributor," from Isaac Asimov's Science Fiction Magazine. I'm having some doubts about this story, simply because I use a lot of obscure shakespeare quotes for one character's dialogue, and I don't think most people recognize them. They just think I'm overwriting it. So, what to do? Direct attribution in the dialogue, less obscure quotes, a more highbrow magazine to send it to, or I'm just kidding myself and it keeps getting shot down because it stinks. Ah, the glory of a depersonalized rejection letter. So insubstantial, so non-specific. The only thing you know for sure is they didn't buy it.
