I'm happy to report my fourth Flame Tree acceptance. This one is for 'Detective Stories', due out in November. It's a second outing for my two Victorian policemen, MacAndrew and Smithers, whose first case featured in the inaugural edition of The Sockdolager back in 2015.

I also have two other acceptances waiting on a publication date. (That's not counting Albedo 2 where I've been waiting so long I'm pretty sure publication is not going to happen.)

It may be worth pointing out to newer members that acceptances aren't the last stage, publication is. You can have magazines go out of business or editorial changes that leave your story out in the cold again, even when you thought you'd sold it.


Congrats. I had one I wanted to send it for that but couldn't see a way to get it under the word limit.



Examine every sentence and try to take out one word from each. There's usually at least one word you can eliminate from each sentence.
For there is death in the sound of it, and a glamorous fatality, like silver pennons downrushing at sunset, or a dying fall of horns along the road to Ronceveaux.

The only easy day was yesterday.

Sorry I'm late congratulating you, *Ishmael*, but I'm happy to hear of your continued success! I was both happy/sad for you when you pro'd out, because I know you really wanted to win this contest. But getting in those beautiful pro anthologies is a great honor, and you've done it many times. Keep up the good work, and thanks for letting us know!

Cheers!

Why did I think you could only submit a story once?

Because finalists and semi-finalists can't be submitted again, maybe? (Anything below that absolutely can be resubmitted, although editing beforehand is recommended.)


Very good to know!

Sent another to Asimovs. I don't know why I bother with them. At this point, my goal with them is for my story to stay under consideration longer than 48 hours. wotf019

Great cover, congratulations! I love those little diamonds, it makes it look even more better. I hope I will be able to publish my story soon and to share a cover too.
