Very cool (and interesting), amoskalik! I guess so much of what we do comes down to editorial taste.

Thanks guys. Editorial taste indeed. To quote Matt Dovey from another thread, "Never self reject!" and to quote Robert Heinlein, "Keep sending it out until it sells!" Or in today's world, keep sending it out until you decide to self publish it.

My mecha story "Final Flight of the PhoenixWing" will be appearing in THE RAZOR'S EDGE, a military SF/F anthology about rebellion from Zombies Need Brains. Pre-orders here: https://squareup.com/market/zombies-need-brains-llc/

Fun fact: I actually got rejected from their SUBMERGED anthology last year (missing out on being anthology-mates with Dave wotf001 ) for what I thought was a better story. Goes to show how little we can judge our own work...

I sold a story to The Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction. *faints*

Blogged about it here: http://www.ympang.com/i-sold-a-story-to ... e-fiction/

It's close to April Fool's. Wouldn't blame y'all if you didn't believe me.
