Alrighty. Another 3 day rejection from GUD for my piece “Retired.”
I sent GUD yet another story. This one (“Like Everyone Else”) is strictly literary with no horror elements to it (though it is a bit dark).
I also sent “Retired” back out, this time to Fantasy Magazine.
I have had one rejection from Fantasy magazine a couple of months ago, but I like the look of their publication and wanted to give this one another shot. The piece I sent is not a fantasy story, but the guidelines state that their magazine has a broad definition of fantasy (and to me it seems that they buy anything with speculative elements).
Of course I have broken one of my own rules on this one and have not yet read an issue of the magazine. So maybe if I get a rejection I should consider myself in ranks with Mr. J.D. McNutterhouse.
