EVERY WEEK, REJECTION LETTERS FROM MY PAST. BECAUSE THE HURT GOES AWAY AFTER A COUPLE OF DECADES.

THIS WEEK IN REJECTION!

This Week in Rejection!: New Blood (Part 3!)

Hey, remember the guy who sent me this and this?

He’s back!

 

New Blood 3

 

To be fair, I remember the story in question and it was not only the vilest, most disgusting thing I’ve ever tried to publish, but was also pretty, er, opaque. I don’t blame him for not understanding it.

As you can see, I was clearly encouraged by the personal responses I was getting, even though they were all rejections, because I kept trying. (The words “your fine work” were like catnip to young Barry!) I’m not sure if I tried a fourth story or not — you and I will be surprised together if I stumble upon a fourth New Blood rejection in my file in the future!
