Sybil’s Slush November 12, 2008 – Posted in: Sybil's Garage

If you haven’t already figured out, I’m a little behind on reading slush.  I use the first person because the fault is entirely mine.  The readers have all been doing their part to keep our average response time down to 12 days.  It’s the indolent (or, more fair to say, inundated) me which is the cause for some submissions to pass the 30 day mark without a response.  But not to worry!  I am working hard to catch up.  Ditto for poetry.

Here are the fiction stats presently.  I don’t have current stats for poems at the moment.

275 stories received
