Whew! It took longer than expected, but I’ve finally narrowed down the list of open submission stories we’re interested in for the anthology. Everyone who submitted a pitch should expect an email from me within 48 hours explaining my decisions one way or the other. I still need to take care of a few details and clarify a few things with Jason, but by Thursday night, the open submission process should come to a close.
While many of you will be disappointed with my email for the simple fact it will be a “rejection letter,” I would like to congratulate everyone for making my job more difficult than I had imagined it would be. It wasn’t easy because each story was unique and stood to impact the book in a positive way if included in the anthology. Naturally I had to make some cuts and decide what would be best for the book, but believe me, if there was a way to get more pages I’d certainly add a few more of your stories to the lineup.
