Wasn’t able to place Mrs Gagarin at F&SF either.
Which raises the question: do I go on down the list and just keep submitting to market after market? Do I find somewhere else to put this? At what point do I either decide this isn’t working or go for a full-scale revision?
Being rejected by F&SF wasn’t a massive surprise. They’re a popular well-paying market and have limited spaces. I just want to watch out and make sure I’m not slinging around something that nobody in their right mind wants.
Oh well, I’ll try somewhere else. And then somewhere else. And then maybe think some more.
