As for me, I've got a surreal, Heroes sorta take on literature that's up today at Every Day Fiction

I was hoping for a release on the 24th when the new season starts. Alas, I'm two days early.

Mind blown indeed. That is so far beyond where I am I can't even conceive of it. Big congrats.

Dustin, that's a fun little story. I enjoyed it.

Here is an announcement:

Ishmael has achieved a double century of rejections this year. How much more can a man take? Is he a glutton for punishment? Will his sheer determination force some editor to give in and publish his work or, with three months still to go, can he boost productivity from five rejections a week to one a day, achieving the coveted THREE HUNDRED REJECTIONS by Christmas?

Alternatively perhaps he could win WotF? wotf011

Which of these exciting targets will he achieve first? Stay tuned for the next exciting episode of:

A TYKE'S PROGRESS!

Just sold a story I wrote in 2012 (and that had earned me a form rejection from the contest in 2013 some time) to Abyss & Apex, after 246 days on submission. And it won't publish until next October. That's a long lead time! wotf003
