Back from Canada (more on that later). In the stack of mail from when I was gone:
After 44 days, Stanley Schmidt at Analog found my backwards-in-time story ‘not quite suitable.’ Next market up for this one is probably Asimov’s, though I’m tempted to hold it for a bit and send it to Strange Horizons, since they have a quicker turnaround time. (Can’t send it to SH immediately, since I’ve already got a story there.) At 5,300 words, it is a smidge above SH’s preferred length (5k), but the guidelines say that they’ll consider stories up to 9k.
Also a postcard from Writers of the Future saying they’ve recieved my entry (the spider story).
