UFO2 Update


Submissions are now closed for UFO2. We received well over 600 unsolicited submissions in addition to the stories from authors whom I asked directly to contribute to the book.

Most of the round 1 submissions have been read and responded to. All, or almost all will be responded to in the next 48 hours. At that point I’ll take about a week and reconsider all final-round stories, re-read comments and suggestions made by the associate editors, and send out the rest of the acceptances.

Once all the contracts have been signed and the TOC finalized, I will post the final line-up here.

    Cant wait. A number of my friends have submitted and appreciated the fast turn around and polite rejections… Well disappointed but fast response and nice/polite is unfortunately not the norm so its been appreciated.

      Thanks! Sending out rejections isn’t pleasant on my end, either. Everyone associated with UFO are working writers ourselves and we know how rejections feel. But they’re part of the business — we have to pick a very small number of stories from 600+ and decline the rest. So at least we make sure not to waste the writers’ time by holding on to their work for an unnecessarily long period of time.
