Re: Simultaneous submissions

Addendum to the above: submit elsewhere under those circumstances, but don't tell the editor you've done so. After all, slow as he is, he may still buy it. Once it's sold elsewhere, then of course you're obligated to tell him...but it's not a bad idea to explain with some subtlety that you waited a...

Re: Almost Success - The "Mixed Feelings" Thread

I should add... At Asimov's, IN MY EXPERIENCE, the wait from Under Review to a decision is usually days, maybe a week. At Analog, I have never seen one of my stories in Under Review. Maybe Trevor has that feature turned off. Goodness. I don't know if I have enough nails to last a week. But once aga...

Re: Almost Success - The "Mixed Feelings" Thread

(Long time lurker, first time poster) Hello, fellow wordsmiths! I have a submission at Assimov's at 38 days, and today it just switched over to "Under Review." <snip> 38 days at Asimov's is average for them, maybe even a little fast. 68 days at Analog is 40 to 60 days short of their recen...
