Interzone November Email Submissions Update

Quick Update: I've read through about some 240 of them, but am about 100 behind in replying. Now I am trying to catch up on my replies, but have had two replies to two email addresses that give me permanent failures. Both are netzero email addresses (one netzero.com and one netzero.net).

It's strange, because my 'receive acknowledges' went fine to these email addresses a couple of weeks ago, and now I've tried resending my response several times and get nothing but permanent errors.

Anyway: Bruce Golden and Luke Jackson: if you read this, please contact me at Jetse (dot) deVries (at) gmail (dot) com.

UPDATE: I got through to Luke Jackson on an alternate email address. However, in the meantime there's another netzero bounce: Scott Rollsen, if you read this, please contact me as well, as my reply to you bounced, as well.

Also google itself is blocking some of my replies, thinking I'm sending out spam! They do get through on a resend, but it surely can't be the idea to repeatedly resend messages. This happened four times today (December 22), and it's quite annoying.

I struggle onwards.

UPDATE 2: signs that your brain is trying to tell you to stop writing responses for the night sometimes manifest as typos.

  • comaprison (when I meant 'comparison);
  • meatfiction (when I meant 'metafiction');
Those are the ones I caught. So do please bear with me if you see a funny (and most likely unintentional) typo in a personal reply from me.

Strange.. you could try my other email address, lukedjackson (at) gmail (dot) com.

For those of us on gmail who haven't received a response (or who's spam traps exceed a rationally searchable size), do we:

a) keep waiting patiently
b) write comments/posts to the effect we're waiting patiently?

For the moment, please keep waiting. I am trying to get everything done by the year's end, but might shoot over into the first week of January.

However, when I've sent out all replies I will post this both here and on the TTA boards. If you haven't received anything then, feel free to query.
