Fiction Editor Jed Hartman over at Strange Horizons sends word they're passing on Prince Wanted. Letter is short and to the point, not sure if it's a form or not. It just says they're not going to accept it for publication. Fair cop.
I know where I'm going to send it to next. So I'll give it another once over and send it back out (hopefully tonight).
edit I wrote this earlier today, but as you can tell by the time stamp, the day went down the crapper (too much to explain why, and it's not at all pleasant). I haven't had a chance to re-read Prince Wanted. I want to before I send it in to Abyss & Apex. Tomorrow is meeting night, so might not happen then. Hopefully by Wednesday.
edit the duece Ah, it appears that A&A is closed for submissions. :( And the crappy day just keeps rolling.
I should say that the crappiness of the day does not relate to the rejection. It has everything to do with the day and first night job.
