13 months and Baen rejected my novel "Neanderthal Swan Song." Not a surprise. I spoke with Alan Dean Foster back in August, and he said that he and his agent had some discussions with Baen shortly before that. According to him, they are really only buying military SF and alt history. Since Neanderthal Swan Song falls into neither category, I'm glad just to finally have the manuscript back in my hands. Will be sending queries to agents now.
I'm almost done with the story I am writing intended for the Jay Lake anthology. The deadline is tomorrow, but I've crossed the minimum word count and have maybe 10% of the story left to tell. Hopefully I'll have enough time for a thorough once-over.
