Nothing to get overly excited about yet…but I sent one of my favourite short stories out to the Intergalactic Medicine Show several weeks ago. Not having heard back (I sent April 17th) , I assumed the worst.

However, I just received an email from them: It has come to my attention that a batch of stories were passed from the assistant editor to me for further consideration without the authors of said stories being notified. Your story was one of those and I wanted to let you know that it has moved up the ladder, which only 10 to 15% of all stories do, so congratulations on getting that far.

So that’s semi-good news. I guess I’ll hear in about 4-6 weeks.
