Wow! It’s starting to rain submissions. They’re beginning to pour in.
Two short stories and three poems in one day. Excellent.
But I’ll wait to read them because I’ve been sick as a dog the last twenty hours or so. Food poisoning maybe, or a particularly wretched flu.
It does my potential contributors no favour to struggle through a first reading while resisting the urge to vomit. And for all the wrong reasons too.
I think I’ll wait till I’m in a more impartial frame of mind. Will get back to everybody within a week or less. As someone who spent 40 years waiting for word from assorted persnickety editors I figure I owe it to contributors to respond ASAP. I know the pain of waiting.
Issue#2 IS full up, so anything I select from now on will be going into issue #3 which may not come out till January. And there’s a special “themed” issue for later in 2017 I may put contributions aside for. More on that in the near future.
Cheers! The Graeme
