PodCastle, personal rejection:

Dear Kalin,

Thank you for submitting "A Tale of Heroes and Villains" to PodCastle. It's an interesting story, but it didn't quite come together for us and we've decided to pass on it.

We appreciate your interest in our podcast; thanks again for giving us the chance to look at your story. We hope to see more of your work in the future.

Kind regards,

Jared Millet's Goodreads review of Compelling Science Fiction #15:

A great comeback for Compelling SF! A lot of good stories here, but my favorite is easily "Two Moons" by Elena Pavlova.

Cosmic Roots and Eldritch Shores, personal rejection:

Hi Kaloyan. Thanks for your submission. We liked a lot about it but it didn't entirely work for us.
It does have a fun YA feel to it, but it needs a bit more work yet. Some of the dialogue is repetitive, and the wise-cracking demon is a bit stereotypical. We never learn the boy's name; he is referred to throughout as "'the boy" We'd like to see his character developed a bit. If he is skilled enough to call up the ruler of hell then he should have a bit more character and ability to vocalize in an intelligent way. And although the joke is that he's called up the ruler of hell just to destroy his school, it doesn't come off that strongly as a joke. Something more creative and interesting would hold the reader more strongly. The setting is not described, leaving the action to take place in a void. A good setting could add a lot to the atmosphere. If the book the boy is using is so inadequate, how could it have been used for a successful summoning? The ending felt a bit flat, and left no satisfying resolution.

If you wanted to revise with these points in mind we would be happy to consider this story again in a future submissions round.

Hi Kalin. We are very glad to receive work from writers in other languages, and are happy you have sent Kaloyan's story to us. We understand that the writers you translate for may not be able to communicate in English. But to accept a translated story, we would need to receive an email from the writer themselves, in their own language, stating they are giving the person they name permission to submit their story for them. Their letter would also have to state what arrangement for payment they wish. They could include a translation into English of their email.

Scott H. Andrews wrote:Thanks very much for sending this story to _Beneath Ceaseless Skies_.
I'm sorry it's not quite right for me. I liked the brooding feel that I
felt in the tone, and I liked the sense of detail of individual moments
and of the world; in most places, that sense of detail felt to me
balanced between giving some tactile or world information but not so
much that it slowed the pace, but in other places, things felt a bit
sparse to me or more quick or summary than I needed. I liked the
narrator's gumption and resourcefulness, although I had some moments of
confusion about the plot logic. I liked the escalation of suspense as
the narrator was trying to summon their wife and escape the sultan's
captivity, but the last paragraph felt to me more abrupt than I needed
in order for it to feel a satisfying conclusion, I think because it felt
to me like summary or incidental information rather than something that
had actually happened or not.

I appreciate your interest in our magazine. I hope you will feel free
to submit other work in the future.

Escape Pod, personal rejection:

Dear Kalin,

Thank you for sending “Love in the Time of Con Crud” to Escape Pod. Unfortunately, this story wasn’t a good fit for us. Choosing stories is a subjective process, and we have to reject many well-written stories. Please note that we do not accept revised stories, but we wish you the best in finding this one a good home, and we look forward to your next submission.

We wouild also like to apologize for holding onto it for so long. We're still learning our new submissions software which meant a few stories got neglected this past spring.

This story was very well-received across our entire editorial team, and reached the final round of consideration. Very few submissions reach this stage, but we’re sad to say this piece wasn’t quite what we’re looking for right now.

Best Regards,
S.B. Divya & Mur Lafferty

Fantasy & Science Fiction, personal rejection:

Dear Kalin,

Thank you for giving me a chance to read "The Golden Demon" by Yancho Cholakov. The beginning of this grabbed me and I liked the quality of the prose, but I wanted another layer to the characters earlier in the text and the ending didn't quite hit the mark for me. I'm going to pass on this story for Fantasy & Science Fiction, but I wish you best of luck finding the right market for it and hope that you'll keep us in mind in the future.

In the meantime, we all hope you are staying safe and healthy.

Best regards,

Charlie

Hi Kalin,

Apologies for the very long delay in getting back to you. Thank you for submitting Kaloyan Zahariev’s story ‘Aspiring Magician’. I’m delighted to tell you it’s been accepted for publication.

Our schedule for December is now full, so his story will most likely be published next year, but I will let you know the exact date in advance.

We will need Kaloyan’s address to put on to the contract before we send it.

Let me know if you need anything else and thank you again for your patience.


Best wishes,

Отзиви за англоезичния превод на романа „ЕНИА“:

A literary agent wrote:Thank you for sending me your query for ENIA. I thoroughly enjoyed the voice of your characters and overall vision for this book. However, I am not currently looking for science fiction projects like this and must pass. I wish you the best of luck in finding the right home for this project.


On Inkshares, S.T. wrote:I didn't want to stop reading, but life calls. So far, ENIA is the most entertaingly original story I've read on Inkshares since I joined in 2015. Lekov's lively, flowing writing swept me along on the promise of a journey I've never even imagined.

Reckoning, personal rejection:

Dear Elena and Kalin,

Thank you very much for submitting, but I'm sorry to say I can't accept "A Winter Census of Vampires" for Reckoning. While I adored the exploration of a fungus infecting vampires in a similar manner as pathogens currently infect and destroy bat colonies, and the idea that vampires, like other animals, might be necessary predators in an ecosystem that is profoundly negatively changed by their absence, as well as the little procedural details giving this a nice air of verisimilitude, overall the pacing lags in parts and the characters' motivations were sometimes opaque or confusing to me. I believe both could be addressed by a judicious amount of cutting, and if you were at all interested in resubmitting something closer to 10-12K, I'd be very interested in taking another look.

Sincerely,

Gabriela Santiago

Cosmic Roots and Eldritch Shores, personal rejection of "Virgil and the Water":

Hi Kain. Thanks for your submission. We enjoyed it but it didn’t completely work for us. As requested here is some unedited feedback from our first readers; it is not meant as diplomatic critique, it is only written to help the editors as they consider the story:

-- This story is a SF/Historical Fiction piece that re-imagines Virgil as an alien biorobot preoccupied with aqueducts and Roman downfall.

-- It's... thick. The prose is heavy with metaphor and simile to the point I feel like it gets in the way of the text. For example, there's a 153-word sentence inside a 416-word introductory sentence.

-- There is a story here, but I think it probably could be 1/2 the length and get it across far better. Overall, a decent story, but way too wordy to be accessible.

-- Well written, but mostly historical fiction rather than fantasy or science fiction.

-- The epilogue explains the story, but the story should explain itself.

however, finally get a chance to read the story you sent me. It's

woven through it. I was crying by the end of it and I can think of no
greater compliment than that. :D Thank you so much for sharing. I hope
you can find a good home for it. It really deserves to be read by
people. It's exactly the type of story I hope we get to see more of. :D

DreamForge, story held for consideration:

Your submission to DreamForge "Love in the Time of Con Crud" has moved to our "Under Consideration" category. That means you're well within the top 10% and we loved your story. From there it's all about story mix and budget, what fits best, and how things compare when we winnow submissions down to the finest stories we have - because we still won't be able to publish all the ones we'd like. Give us about 30 days to get back to you on this. We received over 500 stories and we've worked our way through about half that at this point. We wish you the best of luck, congratulate you on such good work, and thank you for submitting to DreamForge.

Adi Magazine, personal rejection of "Uprising":

Hi again Kalin,

Many thanks for submitting Valentina’s story to Adi’s open call for short fiction. Though it wasn’t ultimately selected, the piece made it onto our shortlist of 15 (out of more than 300 submissions) and our team really enjoyed it. Thanks for considering Adi and do be in touch about future work/translations — there may very well be opportunities down the line. Thanks again, and all best,

The Best of World SF, Vol. 3, acceptance:

Lavie Tidhar wrote:Hi Elena and Kalin,

I had a chance to read "Two Moons" (on Compelling SF, as it happens!) and really loved the story and the world-building. So I would like to indeed take it for The Best of World SF: Volume 3, for 2023 publication.

Payment will be around 5c/word, for non-exclusive anthology reprint rights, with a further option on foreign language anthology rights (paid at an additional rate if/when one happens). I can offer the same fee for the translator (in this case, I guess it's up to you how you split it?).

If this is acceptable, I just need an author and translator bios, 1-2 paragraphs each, up to date to 2023.

Once I deliver the anthology to the publisher, their rights person will be in touch to handle paperwork and payments.

Let me know? And many thanks!

Lavie.

DreamForge Anvil Issue 7 is Online Now

DreamForge Anvil #7 is FREE ONLINE, with 8 great stories and essays on writing, science as fiction, and the meaning of life.

When you see the words “The Meaning of Life,” does it call to mind the purpose of humans in the universe? Was there a meaning for Homo habilis? Is there one for the hyacinth in our backyard?

Enjoy our new issue and great illustrations too!
