All but one are SFF mags, the exception is a well-known mainstream mag.

This last batch I sent between 6/2011 and 11/2011 ARE taking much longer than I'm used to. Why? Again, I'm hoping because they're passing up the editorial ladder.

A story of mine that was out to a major SFF mag for over two years actually WAS sitting on the chief editor's desk, having been passed on by the preliminary readers. It just missed the sale, alas.

Anyhow. I was inspired today to query the slow responders and to send out four stories that had been awaiting resubmission.

My short story house is again in order!
