I'd made mention of this on Twitter a few days back, but I realize not everyone is on Twitter, and if they are, they aren't necessarily following me, so here's the skinny: The maybe pile has been weaned down even more. Out of the initial 276 stories, I have pulled out 45 "definites" and put 111 in what I'm calling the "maybe-maybe" pile.
Now it's just a matter of picking and choosing about half of those 111 stories, which I must say is going to be very hard, as they're all so great.
So ... that's it for now. In the next day or so I plan to have another mini-contest in celebration of a story being published in a magazine that was thought to be dead. Stay tuned.
