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!: Asimov’s Redux

So, waaaaay back in the first This Week in Rejection!, I showed off my very first rejection letter, from Asimov’s Science Fiction. You can see it here.

Today, I stumbled upon another Asimov’s rejection. Based on the change in address and on the inclusion of an e-mail address and a website, I can confidently say that this newer rejection was earned roughly fifteen years later. Possibly closer to twenty.

Anyway, I show you this letter because, believe it or not, the rejection letter hadn’t changed at all in the intervening years! Other than an updated address and internet information, the only change is the formatting and the lack of a faux signature from the editor.

Otherwise…exactly the same!

Compare this:

Wild, eh?
