And they rejected it faster than the last one.

So it's off to Analog- which is also using the same submission system. Makes me wonder if they're all owned by the same people.

Is it using Submittable? I've used that for lots of different presses ranging from sci-fi to romance. I think it's just a catch all apps for publishers.

^I don't think so. But it might be something similar.

Submittable sounds familiar.

At least we don't have to sit around wondering. :no:

Analog and Asimov's are-- along with Alfred Hitchcock and Ellery Queen.

Well, here's a new one for you. I don't know if there's much (any) money, but publicity, amirite?

http://www.triggerwarningshortfiction.c ... damnation/

This is the noir issue but they do SF and horror too, so check 'em out.

Trigger Warning. :lol: I'll have to write a story about Millennials freaking out over an alien invasion or something. :lol:

Temporarily on hold, though. I'll have to save that tab.

Yeah there's more than a few out there that aren't accepting submissions right now.

Actually Trigger Warning pays a bit better than I thought it would, so you should definitely check it out.

I've got the tab saved, so I'll check it daily. And figure out what I can send to them.

Hyperlight 11 chapter 3 is done. :) I decided to keep what I'd done for the first two chapters rather than starting over. This is going to be slow, especially with the Fringe in the middle, but hopefully I'll have it to Rick by end-September.

No word from Analog yet, so at least I'm not getting an instant reject like the last two.

I also had the anthology I was submitting Reefcake to get canceled so I'm putting that one out on my own. Slated for September 24th. Yay, more work.

Aw, bummer. I wonder why it got cancelled. Not a shortage of submissions, I'm sure.

I did get your birthday story and will read it, by the way (and you are in the Birthday Thread, also by the way).

A shortage of submissions was exactly why. Too many with not enough authors who had time.

Wow, I wouldn't have expected a shortage these days, with so many venues being overwhelmed with submissions.

This was just to one an author was putting together, not the publisher's anthology.

I read blab's birthday story, which is an excerpt from Dwarves In Space IV (which was DIS III when I read it). I'm now working on a WIP by a poster at Terran, and then on to the next Hyperlight, and then Murder The World, The Director's Cut. My dance card is full.
