This week I reached into my folder and pulled out a rejection from OMNI magazine:
If you’re going to get rejected, you could definitely do worse than getting rejected by Ellen Datlow. Although I never did get into OMNI magazine, my old website did receive an OMNIVISION award wayyyyy back in the 1990s. This site no longer exists, of course, but you can see it on the Wayback Machine on those days when it’s functioning properly. And although I never got into any of Ellen Datlow’s anthologies, either, I did manage to score a mention in the 15th Annual Year’s Best Fantasy and Horror collection:
Given how many other books are listed here this isn’t necessarily such a big deal, but I’ll take what I can get.
Don’t forget, this is the last week to vote for the book from which the July Scene-Of-The-Month will be taken! It looks like my unfinished werewolf book The Wolf is way out ahead now — can anything catch it? We’ll find out!
