Rejection And Contract

Today the mail brings the good and the bad of writing. The bad was a 50 day rejection slip from Pirate Writings, the good was the long awaited contracts from Dark Regions. I've also spent the last two days flashing back to my youth, when I was a dyed-in-the-wool gamer: simply stated, I bought the Dragon Magazine cd-rom archive. Despite the controversy it's raised (as well as my hope that the various writers planning on suing Wizards for copyright infringement succeed), I'm happy I bought it. I feel like I'm fifteen again, and it's kind of cool to read stories from issues back in the early 80's and find out they were written by Joel Rosenberg or Lawrence Watt-Evans or Harry Turtledove or Lois Tilton.
