ANALOG Rejection

I received a rejection slip from ANALOG for my novella “Graveyard Shift” today. The only thing notable about it was that I don’t ever remember getting a brief letter actually signed by Stanley Schmidt before. Normally I just get a printed form letter from ANALOG. Maybe they’ve changed the way they do things, but from the wording of the brief note, I take it that Stanley Schmidt actually read my story, which means it managed to get beyond the slush readers.

The next logical place to send it would be F&SF and so that’s where it will go next.
