Nothing in the mail today, but I got word via e-mail the folks at Andromeda Spaceways passed "Good Old Gal" on its first reading.
If it clears the 2nd reading, it would be the 2nd story accepted by ASIM.
Back in Jan. 2003, right after New Year's, they short-listed my story "Dialogue". That was the first time I didn't get an outright rejection, and it was very encouraging at the time.
They ultimately didn't take "Dialogue", and in fact it will be running at RevolutionSF in a few months.
But I'll never forget getting that e-mail back in 2003. It was a big deal then.
