The stories continue to trickle in. Perhaps it’s slower than I’d expected, but there are still ten weeks before the reading period closes. No doubt there’ll be a flood of submissions in the last week or so.
The total now stands at fifteen stories and two non-fiction pieces. See the two charts below for gender and nationality breakdown. I’m still hoping for submissions from further afield, and more women writers. I’ve no complaints so far on the type of stories I’ve been sent. Most have been near-future hard sf, but one or two have tried for something a little different. So keep them coming.
