Many-Colored Hearts

F&SF bounce -- Happy Holidays :-)

Bounce from F&SF. Ten days. Not bad for the holidays. The beauty of submissions to JJA and GVG is that if you miss, it's a quick turnaround, which is why they get most of the stories I write that I think fit their magazine. I still haven't found the right fit, though, and the story just went out the door to Weird Tales.

Hope everyone has a happy holiday. I'm done with all my shopping, and if I'm not ... well, I'm still done. Big Christmas this year. There are still presents to wrap, cookies to make, and rooms to clean. I probably won't surface here again until after the big day.



I should note that "Sacrifices" owes its inspiration to the road kill reports of jhetley and Stephen King's "Mrs. Todd's Shortcut" -- which I incorrectly referenced as "Mrs. Dolan's Cadillac" in my submission letter.

Heh. If it weren't for bad luck, I'd have no luck at all. ;-)
