Just as a point of interest: I've been doing the subs in the order in which they arrived. The deadline for the anthology was August 31. I started reading subs from August 31 yesterday. There were 41 sent in on that day.

Wow... so let's see. 200+ total subs, 41 on the last day... Stupid math! That's a little under 25%?

Quite a few people waited until the last minute, it sounds like (if my math hasn't failed me completely).

It's a lot more than 1/30th, I can see that!

An interesting question will be how many of those final 41 make it beyond the first cut and then into the anthology and if it is a higher percentage than those submitted before the final day.

On one hand, it's the idea of taking every last second to polish the idea - on the other it's the desparation of an approaching deadline.

Errr...I hate to ask....is mine at the end of the queue? I know I had to resend it cause it was in the wrong format - I'd really love to check that you got it (and apologise again for sending it in the wrong format!)

That's incredible!

I suspected as much. People are still reporting to Duotrope and they have you reading stories in order as well. Today, they write that you are reading stories sent as last as August 31st.

You remember being in college, right Kim? Time remaining x effort equals a constant. And so as time goes to zero, effort goes to infinity.
