After a frenetic couple of weeks, we’ve finally selected the stories that will see themselves in print as part of the first Pantechnicon anthology due later this year.
As yet I can’t reveal the list, because I’m awaiting responses from all authors involved to confirm that they wish to proceed (and I’ve already had one author pull out because their story was accepted elsewhere, in spite of our “no simultaneous submissions” policy – while I’m quite forgiving, do remember that most people will blacklist you for such behaviour).
We do have an excellent selection, and picking the final stories was damn hard. There were a few cases where we had to reject purely due to bad luck – where two authors came up with similar themes or plots, both stories were excellent, but one had to win out over the other.
Huge thanks to everyone who submitted a story. I’ll leak more information as and when it’s leakable.
