Have been casting about trying to find information about Ellen Datlow’s forthcoming anthology, Fearful Symmetries,
which is being published by ChiZine Publications. I’d submitted a story, Dreams of the Moon,
back in May 2013. Heard nothing. Thought that was positive. Today discovered on Datlow’s FB
page the selections have been made. Only four stories from their slush made it into the 19 being published. Mine is not among them. Disappointing to be sure.
So, followed up with Sandra Kasturi, who was kind enough to go through her records, and sure enough a rejection was sent out June 19, 2013, which likely ended up caught in SPAM. So, I’ve kept a story out of submission for seven months, needlessly.
Ah well, research another market.
