First rejection of “Graveyard Shift”

When I got home from work tonight (late because of happy hour), I had a the obvious rejection, the self-addressed stamped envelope that I had sent along with the manuscript of “Graveyard Shift” to F&SF. It looks as though I got John Joseph Adams basic rejection this time, which I suppose could be considred a step back.

In any event, I’m going to send out the story tomorrow to ASIMOV’S and in addition, I’m sending my story, “Blind Date” to F&SF. I’ll get them packaged up tonight and sent off before noon sometime tomorrow.


Also in the mail this evening was the October/November 2006 of ASIMOV’S.
