Scr***d again

I don’t know why I submitted to A&A. I knew it was bad as soon as I did it. So far, they have lost 3 out of 5 of my submissions. They are an upper tier (not pro, though) market and I want to break into the pro/semi-pro section of Ralan’s. The following appeared in Speculations:

We have discovered that we have no submissions from 8/15 through 8/21/06. This was no doubt due to our spam attack, which is now over.
Please understand that the January 2007 edition of A&A is now filled, so it might be wise to wait for the November reading period anyhow, _but_ if you wish send us a story that bounced during between the above dates we will certainly take a look at it.
Decisions on stories that were held for second opinions will be sent in the next week or so. Thank you for your patience.

Over a month wasted. Never again!!!!!!!!!!!

Now I have to search Ralan’s for an editor looking for weird stories – not clearly SF, Horror, S&S, or Fantasy. I’d send it to Aoife’s, but I don’t want to wait 6 months for an answer.


Buy the Book!

I cleaned up my tab for Sonny Boy's Help Me and made it into a short book. There's a Kindle version for 99 cents, and if you buy the paperback you get the Kindle free.

Playing "Help-Me" In the Style of Sonny Boy Williamson II: A step by step, note for note analysis of some of Sonny Boy's Signature Riffs

I also write Science Fiction, so you can sample some of my best stories. Also available in Kindle format.

I started reading Science Fiction in the 1950s. I started Writing SF in the 1960s. Then, I had a life. Now I am retired, raising chickens and keeping bees. I am still an avid reader and I have sold about 70 stories in the last 20 years.
I have been collecting information about writing Science Fiction for many years now. Social media has replaced the Blog and large dedicated websites, so the pages here are mostly static. I update them from time to time.
