I thought I would miss the deadline for the Canadian Speculative Fiction Anthology Tesseracts10, but it turns out they accept electronic submissions and that the deadline is today, so I spent the morning preparing my electronic submissions in PDF format.
Now, if you follow the link, you’ll see that the deadline is March 1st… 2005.
Argh. Anyway, it was a good learning experience for me: I figured out how to export PDFs with all the proper formatting in Open Office, and I chose some stories and poems that I think are publishable. I’ve emailed someone at Edge, the publisher of Tesseracts, to see if the next anthology is in the works yet, and I’ve done a little research to see where else I can send stories in the next few weeks. But for now, I suppose I should get showered and go for a bit of a wander with my camera since, after all, I don’t visit Fukuoka every day.
But everyone… ALWAYS check the deadline carefully. Argh.
