On 6/29/10 I sent off a 2700 word Sci-Fi story called “Little green Fonzie” to ANALOG magazine.
I had a lot of hope for this story as it was about and Alien dressed as The Fonz, that comes down to earth to bestow knowledge onto the human race, provided the person he picks can explain why we are worthy.
The story contained a good amount of humor, which I thought would buy me some browine points with the Editor, but unfortunately, this Saturday (8/7/10) I received back my SASE with the default rejection slip inside.
And no personal note of any kind.
It makes me wonder if a story is accepted and they cut you a check, do they would still use the SASE I provided?
I am guessing that payment probably happens via accounting and they use their own envelopes for that.
I really want to see one of those envelopes in my mail box.
