Byline Rejection

A 9 day short personal rejection from ByLine. They liked a poem I sent them, but felt it was too long. Argh.

Back Up Again

If you'd tried to reach this page in the last few days, you probably got a page doesn't exist message. My ISP is in the process of upgrading its webserver, and there was a slight lull in my cyberspacial existance while the changeover occurred. But now I'm back. In writing news, today I received a 10 day Alas from Fantasy & Science Fiction.

Another Dual Death

After nearly a week of silence, a 46 day rejection from Realms of Fantasy (blue form), and a 21 day rejection from its sister publication, Science Fiction Age.

Email Rejection From SFF

A 45 day email rejection from Kurt. As I mentioned earlier (January 4th, to be precise), Kurt liked the story, but a couple other similar pieces beat it out. Drat.

Pleasant Rejection From Vampire Dan

A 25 day personalized rejection from Dan Medici of Vampire Dan's Story Emporium. He said that while it wasn't what he's looking for, he did enjoy it and thought I should keep sending it out. Sigh. Bad humor is a specialized market, unfortunately.

February 13, 1999

Twin Killing

A 12 day rejection from Dark Regions for some poetry, and a 68 day return from Weird Tales. WT mentioned, by the by, that their backlog is finally under control. Hm.

Space & Time Rejection

From Space & Time, a 32 day form rejection with some mildly encouraging commentary added on the bottom of the form.

February 10, 1999

Reject From Analog, Odyssey Withdrawal

A 34 day rejection from Analog. No info other than "No", but my name is typed at the top of the form. I also decided to withdraw a story of mine from Odyssey, after 471 days. Part of the reason why I left it there as long as I did was Liz's pledge to clean out her slush pile by the New Year. But, all waits eventually come to an end.

A 75 day rejection from Japanophile.

February 05, 1999

A 29 day form rejection from Prisoners of the Night.

Pulp Eternity Acceptance

A 27 day email acceptance from Pulp Eternity. I do a happy dance around my computer, which scares my cats. They'll get over it. Contract and details forthcoming in a few weeks.
