Asimov's guidelines say "Borderline fantasy is okay, but no sword and sorcery." The fact that I have that line memorized should tell you how hard I've been trying to convince myself that a Vodoun story is only "borderline". Asimov's was the first magazine I ever subscribed to, so I have a nostalgic desire to sell there. But no matter how hard I try, I can't see this story as SF. Fantasy or horror, maybe, but not SF.
Darn. OK I'll stand by my three. Tor is too long of a wait and you've got a nice long story you can put up now for 2.99 after it goes through IGMS (with two Cs, in Intergalactic damn it!!), Annex.
