So much rejection: #s 260 – 267: Harpur's Palate, Asimov's, Beat To A Pulp, Shotgun Honey, Connotation, Apex

David Cranmer at Beat To A Pulp rejected me, twice, kindly and personally. Beat To A Pulp – along with Needle – are pulp markets I WILL CRACK.  You heard it here first, people.

Mid-American Review reports that “there were quite a few favorable comments made, supporters of your work speaking up on its finer points.” I would like to hug those supporters. I wish there more of them. Enough to get this goddamn story published.

Shotgun Honey didn’t feel the story was right, but told me to keep ’em coming. All right.

Connotation Press fiction editor Meg Tuite and I have been corresponding on a few stories – she’s already taken one; it’s just that the other wasn’t right. We’ll work on it.

Apex regrets to inform me &c.

Asimov’s appreciates, but &c.

Harpur’s Palate thanks me but &c.
