Double No

They left on the same day, they came back on the same day. A first for me, I think. Today a personal 11 day email rejection from Altair, and an 11 day form rejection from Dark Regions. Dark Regions rejection was interesting. A few things checked on the "reason why" area, but one that stood was no. 3: Not in the SF/F/H, or weird family genre. Hey, it's hard to sell, I'll grant you, but it's a piece with lots of Lovecraftian/Cthulhu references (although they're stacked near the end) and what's weirder than Lovecraft? Suggests to me that they didn't finish the piece before deciding to bounce it. Hmm. Indirect feedback...
