I am still waiting (56 days) to hear from Abyss & Apex. I wrote to Aleta Daknis on day 45 and she promised to look into it, but I’ve heard nothing. I will query on August 1 to the editorial address with a copy to Aleta.

8 Stories out averaging 21 days. I sent out 4 around the first of July and I should hear from those soon. These are all weak stories and should be rejected. I would hope that perhaps one of them will be accepted.

I have to write some more. I am just about finished with the Western story, but it seems sort of ordinary – it’s spec-fic, but not spec-fic enough. I’ve sold all the strong stories and I need to replace them in the queue.
