Big Mail Day

All the birds are starting to come home to roost. Today in the mail I received a 12 day photocopy from Science Fiction Age (can someone tell Edelman they need to print a fresh batch of those, please?), a 9 day polite rejection from Indigenous Fiction for a couple of poems, and a 109 day rejection letter from Amazing. This last has to be one of the nicest rejection letter I've ever gotten. Editorial comments, flattering praise, etc. Left me all warm and glowing.

I also received a check and 3 contributor's copies from Writer's Block Magazine, for my short-short story, "The Wish." This is an old story, and I'm a little embarrassed to see it in print. Of course, they paid me, so I'll get over it.
