Submissions update …
Our Unholy Triumverate of Carnivah House editors — in other words, Gere, Tom and me — is nearly finished reading all submissions for “The Infinity Swords.”
Each of us is reading every submission. We will gather Sunday to compare notes; any story that all three of us likes is in. Stories that get no votes, of course, will be rejected.
As for stories that get one vote or two votes, we’ll discuss those. Those in favor will try to convince those against that the stories should be in the anthology, and those against will explain their problems with the stories. We’ll hash out the differences; in some cases, the problems can be addressed with minor rewrites.
At some point, we’ll have as many stories as we can afford and the anthology will be filled. It is quite likely some pretty good stories will not make it into the book, as we have a tight budget.
Expect acceptance notices, rewrite requests and rejections to start going out over the next couple of weeks. Thanks for sending us your stories, and thanks for your patience while we try to assemble a kick-ass anthology.
