Pooh. Realms of Fantasy passed on “Oroflex (Patent Pending),” saying “this is a cute fairy tale variant, but I’m trying to cut back on those a bit.” Just my luck to get an editor who’s on a literary subgenre diet!
But I had a stack of returned stories to send out today anyway, so here’s what happened:
- “Soulsearching” to Coyote Wild
- “Hell’s Belles” (reprint) to Clonepod
- “The Queen’s Gardener” to Doorways
- “Matchmaker” to Serpentari.us
- “A Familiar(’s) Tale” to Renard’s Menagerie
- “Oroflex (Patent Pending)” to F&SF
I have no idea where to send “A Father’s Blessing” right now, but some markets open up on 8/1, so I can wait a week or so.
