Pboz Farewell

I got this sad little swan song from the print editor, Krisin, at Pindeldyoz, the hot online journal, which also launched a print edition. It says: "Hello Dear Writer: Thank you for submitting to Pindeldyboz. Here's the thing, we're no longer considering submissions for the 8th issue, because honestly, we are most likely not having one. We are going on an indefinite hiatus and we would be jerks to hold onto your story when it could be read by other editors with well-funded literary magazines.

So, thank you for your support and for sending us your story. Please read as often as possible for many new and wonderful stories (perhaps you'd like to submit there?) and for news on the future of the print edition.

Say we can still be friends."

Heartbreaking, really.

Funny. Very funny.

I love the last line. Maybe it's not the most professional rejection letter in the world, but it has some personality and wit. That puts it in high standing from this chickee's perspective.

Quoiblina: You're back!

Oh, yes. In all my splendor. :)

I never went away, really... just didn't have anything pithy to say. Still love the site...
