Yesterday I had two pieces still out on submission: A Stab in the Dark (to Strange Horizons) and Death in a Tin Can (my submission piece to Viable Paradise)
At 1am, Strange Horizons said “No, thanks”
At 1:45am, Viable Paradise said “Congratulations”!
I now have no short fiction on submission anywhere. I need to remedy that. But first, we squee.

Congrats. It’s nice to get a response back, especially when it is a yes. I really like the title “Death in a Tin Can.” Good luck.
Thank you! And thanks for stopping by!
What’s the byline? John Murphy? Some permutation involving initials? Something else entirely?
The reward for getting into Viable Paradise is the manuscript getting torn to shreds and fed to John Scalzi’s cats, on scenic Martha’s Vineyard 🙂 Hopefully the version that results will be published somewhere, though, probably under John P. Murphy.
Me too! I saw your comment on twitter. See you there 😀
Hi, fellow classmate!
Here’s to hoping nothing you write gets fed to Scalzi’s cats. 😉
Eh, paper’s cheap — and just look what those cats did for bacon!
