As way of an update, (since a few of you have asked), I just have to say that the quality of submissions–over 600 total–to Shadows & Tall Trees 7 is uniformly excellent. I have to make some very tough choices here. (I may have to increase the page count). I’ve already turned down a number of terrific stories that are sure to find good homes elsewhere. And I hate disappointing writers, friends, and colleagues who have sent in good work.
I have about 100 more submissions to read that arrived in the last 2 days. If you sent something earlier than that then it is in my “second read” pile.
Thanks to everyone who showed interest in the book.
