Egrets Reading

Rejections and Acceptances

Today, Strange Horizons rejected two poems but Tales of the Talisman accepted, "As the Moon Loses Its Smile" for issue 2.3, which is scheduled for publication in December 2006.

More imminent, Eclectica accepted my latest "word poem," Lost in the System, for the January issue. They had actually attempted to contact me awhile ago, but I didn't receive the acceptance e-mail for some reason. The words I had to use in this poem were:

orphanage
eggshell
vile
summon

The lure of such a challenge is always irresistable to me. I don't quite know why.
