I just got an e-mail from Elisabeth Waters, who's editing Sword and Sorceress these days. She's holding my story for further consideration. :D Seriously, S&S usually bounces a story within a day or three if they don't want it. I'm delighted that she's interested enough to want to sit on it for a bit. This isn't any kind of guarantee, but just the fact that she wants to hang on to it to see whether anything better comes along between now and the fourteenth is awesome!
