“The Cost That Lies Between Heaven and Earth” is one of my favorite stories that I have written. It’s a story told around the spanish inquisition and I think it has the perfect blend, of sex, violence,and mystery. Definitely in the weird category.
Since I was so high on the piece I sent it to uber market Weird Tales Magazine.
Weird Tales would be apex of what may considered my writing career. They have had my submission for 4 months. At first I was thinking “Yay, they are considering it’ BUT I sent a query as to what the status was and if they actually received it. That has gone unanswered for 2 weeks so I have come to the conclusion that they are just far behind and being a top market that attracts the top talent makes perfect sense. Heck, they were even closed for submissions a while ago they were so backed up.
So, I continue to wait. Out of curiosity does anyone know if they happen to be behind?
