Re: Jibber Jabber - Q1 - 29

That's over half a million dollars in prizes for WOTF and IOTF, which doesn't cover the costs of the event and workshops. This is a sign...

Re: Quarter 4, vol. 29

Swing and a miss. And I'd gotten such good reactions from my first readers on this one.

Rejected 8
No Call 1 (USPS lost a whole bin of entries)
Finalist 3 (1 published in WOTF XXIV, 2 in one year)
Semi 2
SILVER H-M 1
Quarter 10
H-M 17 (Quarter+H-M = 27)
Total 42

Aw well, onward.
