Round Two

Make that three. Yesterday I received notification from Andromeda Spaceways Inflight Magazine (ASIM) that the story I sent them recently has reached round 2 of their submissions process and I would hear more in 2-3 weeks. Today I got another email that it had reached round three and is now on their shortlist for publication!

This either means that it's so short all 3 reviewers thought they'd get it out the way quick, or it's so great they were told to drop everything and read it. I prefer the 2nd theory.

Each edition of ASIM has a differnt editor who chooses their contents from the shortlist. This means that although my story has been accepted as suitable for publication, it might not end up being used. They keep it for up to 3 months while all the editors look at it.

Two of my other stories have got this far, but their webpage does say 1 in 3 make it into print, so the odds are on my side.
