Total Quality Reading attracts total quality VC ... but will he become a bonafide CG'd VC? We shall see... (PSssst, a sense of humor never hurts)

Dear Mr. Rorschalk,

Attached you will find "The Haunting Of Beethoven's Fifth," which isn't quite long enough to deserve your instant rejection form, yet not quite short enough to vanish entirely. I hope it might find a home on your pages.

And no, it is not a simultaneous submission! Hooray!

Recent credits include The Best Of the Bellevue Literary Review, Lady Churchill's Rosebud Wristlet, and Talebones. Upcoming stories will appear in Realms Of Fantasy, Black Gate, and Sleet. My stage plays have been seen in sixteen states plus Canada, with more in the offing––wherever that may be.

I wish you all the best in your life and work, and look forward to your response.

Dear Mr. Rigney,

Thank you for the submission. Your track record is most impressive. I will send this to the Floor for its initial examination. I wish you the best of luck.

Well, a pedigree will get me a cup of hot water when I turn on the tap, and no donut.

So thank you, I'll take the luck!
