My story, “The Last S.F. Writer,” was rejected by STRANGE HORIZONS today. It was a form letter rejection this time (or form email, I should say), but it seemed to come back faster than the last time I submitted something to that magazine. Ah well. I got praise on the story when it was submitted to (and rejected from) F&SF. It’s a recursive story and there is a tendency to avoid self-reflexive fiction unless it is unique or extremely well-written. I doubt this was either. It’s an older story of mine–at least 4 years old at this point. Probably time to retire it.
