Just received this email from the editor of Apex: Science Fiction & Horror in regards to a submission I had made to their SF ghost story competition:

quote:
Congratulations! Your story "Inside Josh" was selected as one of the twelve sent to our finalist panel of Ben Bova, Jason March, and M.M. Buckner.

Best,
Jason Sizemore


I'll know by the end of the week... so here's hoping!

This is exciting. I'd be wetting my pants at this stage having those people evaluate my stuff. Keep us posted.

Hi, autumnmuse, and yes it was!

What 'goodness' I was able to squeeze out of that first draft I sent you is entirely due to your harsh, but very detailed line-edit.

If I have any success with it - even placing 2nd or 3rd - I owe it entirely to you. Thanx.

and think of it this way, Ben Bova is reading _your_ writing.

Geez, that raises some ghosts for me. If Ben Bova reads something I sent to Apex that I wrote recently, I hope he's forgotten all those rotten stories I sent to Analog and Omni when he edited them...
