Stupefying Stories

Postby Beth Powers » Fri Apr 01, 2016 2:42 pm

FYI from the Stupefying Stories Facebook page, in case anyone was considering submitting:

"After a great deal of debate, we have decided NOT to reopen to unsolicited submissions at this time. We underpublished in 2015, which means we're overstocked right now, and we've decided to take care of the authors and stories already under contract before we begin to consider new submissions."

I have two stories pending to be published with them, so I hope that means things will actual progress (and I get paid).

I have one as well, and I was hoping the same thing!

Stupefying Stories has resurfaced with an update (it also mentions Straeon--I know someone was asking on here recently, and I don't remember where), but also, the post on their Facebook page today indicates that if you signed off on a copy edit and hadn't heard anything since, you should contact them. I know some of you had pending stories, so I just thought I would pass it along.
