I’ve had a sub at Black Gate for 306 days. This is the last story that I’m waiting for. I don’t do much story submission any more. Today there was a data point on the black hole reporter for Black Gate for a 338 day rejection. They are not catching up. The wait keeps getting longer and longer, but they are still open to submissions. There are very few good S&S Fantasy markets so I sent a piece to them, knowing I’d have to wait 6 months. It’s been 10 months. I can hardly wait for the rejection so I don’t have to check Speculations and the Black Hole every day.
Note: 11/19/2006 – received rejection. I guess this post and a query stirred the pot a little. It read like a form reject.
