Just sent out an email to Aberrant Dreams. I subbed The Small Print to them on July 16th 2007, and I’ve never heard anything back. They’re dealing with a huge submissions backlog, so it’s not that strange.
However, I’ve just finished giving the story a complete overhaul, as I hate the way I used to write. I only did this story two years ago, but I’m really not tooting my own horn when I say that I’ve improved immensely since then.
I really like this story, mostly because it’s got sentimental value for me. It’s the first thing I wrote that made me feel good about my chances of one day becoming an actual published writer.
TSP is fairly fantastic and doesn’t include any strictly horror staples. Sure, it’s got alienation and despair, but what doesn’t nowadays? Once I’ve given it a final polish, I’m going to send it off to one of the pro markets.
