I just received my quickest-ever rejection from SFF: about 24 hours.
I like that so much better than the four months Analog takes. I know where I stand; I can now do what I want with the story; and the new editor puts nice supportive messages in his rejection emails. I don’t know if it’s just because he’s new and trying to be extra awesome, but I hope he keeps it up, because it IS extra awesome.
And as a bonus, ‘No Such Place as Home’ is now up on Smashwords.
