Hello. Last year I wrote a story called "Two Graves." Got some good reviews from other betas, but I'm still unsure if it could be published with today's standards in fiction. What I mean is, the style is an homage to H.C. Anderson, so the narrative is somewhat detached from the characters. Since it's only 4000 words, I was considering submitting it to Lightspeed (they're only open for fantasy stories at the moment) as they specifically state they prefer stories under 5000, but I'm not sure if it's what they like (currently researching).

Yes, I did consider posting to Share Your Work, but it's been a while since I've had time to critique other people's stories and I need this one judged as a whole rather than in segments.

I'd be more than happy to reciprocate, if anyone's interested.
