Having barely survived Evilus (06/06/06), I can now return to having a life - exercising, studying, and especially writing. I'm on the verge of sending out The Path, my personal favorite out of the 30+ short stories I've written, for it's fifth rejection. I'm hoping to have it published in the Rejected Quarterly, a magazine that features stories that have been repeatedly rejected (at least five times), but I'm one rejection shy since Weird Tales never responded. Many of the stories I've read in TRQ deserved to be rejected and I kind of hate having to fall back on that magazine to get my best work published, but then again you gotta love the irony. Besides, it's a difficult story to place because one of the themes deals with child abuse, albeit in a non-graphic manner, and most adult fiction magazines (especially Sci Fi, Fantasy, and Horror) treat that topic as completely verboten. If anybody wants to read it without paying for it, send me an e-mail and I'll send you the story in MS-Word format (or another format if your heathen computer can't handle Microsoft stuff).
