Rejections and requests

I received a rejection from WEIRD TALES this afternoon for my short short story “Of the Knowledge of Good and Evil”. It seemed kind of form-letterish but it also asked to keep them in mind for future stories. I typically don’t write WEIRD TALES-like stories, but if I do, I’ll send them another one.

I had a request from Edmund Schubert, editor of IGMS, for an author essay to appear on his blog for the upcoming appearance of my story, “When I Kissed the Learned Astronomer” in Intergalactic Medicine Show. The story should be out in a few weeks (they are waiting on the artwork). Edmund runs a series of essays by authors who publish stories in the magazine and the essays talk about the creation of the story. I wrote back to him telling him I’d have one within the next 10 days (which was what he requested). I have some homework now.
