Mailbox Blues

When I started submitting stories in 1992, I became obsessed by my mail, listening out for mail vans and postal workers. I learned that ninety-nine out of a hundred 9×12 inch envelopes contained rejection letters. My early acceptances came not by email, but in exciting small envelopes, addressed and stamped by the magazines themselves. This page contains mail reports and other updates. Many thanks to Christopher Reynaga for the camel-and-mailbox artwork.
