I has it.

Two rejections today, one of them from the editor who was holding my story for an undetermined length of time. That story is not my favorite and it's very old, so I think it's time to retire it anyway. The other rejection was the next-to-last print submission I sent before I moved, so I was relieved that I even received it.

So apparently, if I complain enough in my blog about not getting responses, I get rejections. I wonder what would happen if I don't complain at all? Hmm. I suspect magical thinking.

Oh, and I got my contract today from Big Pulp. My story "Trompe L'Oeil" will appear on June 2, 2008. I like the stories I've read over there so far very much. "Trompe L'Oeil," of course, originally appeared in Staffs & Starships #1, so a big shout-out to them too.

Sorry to hear about your rejections. I just received a copy of 'Desolate Places' today - fabulous looking anthology so kudos for being in that.

Thanks! Desolate Places is a good anthology. I love seeing how different people approach a topic from such radically different directions.
