My story Speed Trap is back. Now it owns 25 rejections. It’s the story of a car alarm that is way too good at it’s job. It’s violent, dark, cerebral and not really spec-fic enough for magazines that seem to want feminist zombie stories. I’ll file it away for another few months. Maybe I could rewrite it with another plot line. Maybe the alarm shouldn’t win. This started as a story about a house alarm that kept killing Johovah’s witnesses. I didn’t write it because I figured that wouldn’t go over big, but looking back, I might have sold that story.
