Well, it's been a while since we've updated the blog, and that's partially because we've been overwhelmed with submissions. The submission deadline was August 31, 2010, and we are now officially on hiatus and no longer accepting any submissions for future issues.
I don't have any final tallies for the SFH issue because we've had to ask a few authors to send us corrected submissions. We're giving them a few days to get back to us. Here are the stats I do know:
We have received and logged 387 official submissions so far, but that number may go up before we're through. We have held 10 stories for voting and rejected 150. The editors are currently reviewing 11 submissions right now, with submissions received between June 18 and July 8. We have 216 submissions sitting in our inbox. We will work our way through them by the end of the month.
We hope to do final voting on or before October 5th, so if you're one of the lucky authors who has a story held for voting, we'll let you know as soon as we've made a decision. We have to get through the entire slush pile first.
That's all for now...
