Someone asked earlier, on the subject of the avalanche of submissions that came in on the last day (August 31): did late or early submissions have a higher or lower rate of acceptance? So I compiled the data:

Of the 15 accepted stories,

2 received on August 1
2 received on August 2

Congratulations to all who were accepted! Quick question, Kim. i wasn't in the finalists but I also never received any type of rejection letter. I realize its too late now, but did you actually receive my story? It was called Books of the Dead and dealt with a cult that worshiped zombies as God's chosen warriors . . . .

I'm sorry, that doesn't sound familiar. I said a couple times that people who hadn't heard from me should check, with the date they sent the original.

Hey Doc! Not exactly a related note but one of my art-chick friends did a sketch from "The Barrow Maid"

Thought you might like to see it :)
