30 Rejections

Pedestal magazine closed today without accepting my story. They seem to have stopped reading today and are preparing the Oct 21 issue. The next issue is a for 1500 word stories only. I can assume that I did not sell Speed Trap to Pedestal, which makes 30 rejections for my favorite story. I sent it off the Futurismic today and should hear back from them in less than two weeks. I have yet to decide where it goes to after they reject it. If it comes back before Halloween I might send it to AnotheRealm as their reading period ends on the 31st.

I have started writing a story with the same main character as Speed Trap. I’ve re-written Speed Trap so many times that I feel that I know the character very well. The new story is all written in my head, but I haven’t had time to put it to pixels.


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.

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.
