By the way, a different (as in, not A Rise to the Surface again!) story of mine was published, for a change.

Re: Success!

Thanks everyone. Great story George. Is that the one you had in... Sf Comet was it? Or am I thinking of something else? Thanks, Aaron! Yes, it's the one. And it was also in QuarterReads, and the Campbell anthology, and it's going to be up on a couple other places too. It almost makes up half of my ...

Re: Question about the Scarlet Leaf Review...

Emily, you're right about that, the former submissions page seems to have been deleted. I checked the comments on the site's front page, and it seems that they have stopped taking submissions. Well, I also happen to have some inside information. Apparently Ms. Nastase, the editor, decided to termina...

Re: Yet another etiquette question...

But Cast of Wonders is also an Escape Artists market, so...? I don't really get it. Matt, do you mean that Cast of Wonders' form rejection asks you to submit to a random market and say hello to them?

Few can read the whole thing, as it's enormous. I've read a fair amount of the past anthologies. I think that most people read at least some of it, the question is how much.

Re: 2016 Campbell Award

I gather the 2013 and 2014 Campbellian Anthologies differed from the original series edited by George R R Martin back, I think, in the 80's, insofar as they tried to include all eligible writers and not just nominees. They were issued as unpaid reprints in the run-up to the voting, available for fr...
