To Tor.com, and due out early next year.  Aliens, AIs, and academic politics.

...and that actually basically clears out the short stuff queue, except for the lesbian steampunk mad science epistolary story.  The entire genre should be embarrassed that there aren't more markets that are obvious targets for a 2700-word lesbian steampunk mad science epistolary story.  In any case, I must write more shorts, but not until after I finish the novel.

Congrats!

I could try to suggest potential homes for the lesbian steampunk mad science epistolary story, but as I don't know where it's already gone, I would probably just end up telling you things you already know.

So far it's only been to the lesbian mad science anthology that inspired it, but which turned out to not want much steampunk. So any suggestions you might have would be most welcome. None of the standard markets seem quite right, but perhaps I'm being insufficiently imaginative.

I'd try Beneath Ceaseless Skies. Scott Andrews has been known to take steampunk, and I don't think either lesbianism or mad science would be a dealbreaker with him. :-)

Thanks for the suggestion--I'll give it a try! I've always been put off by their request for a "literary approach"--I'm not against literary approaches but I've always sort of taken it as a matter of faith that I haven't got one. But possibly I'm defining the term too narrowly.

I certainly don't have what I would call a "literary approach" -- I think of that as Kelly Link-type stuff. Which is not much like what BCS publishes. I would describe their focus as being on richly imagined worlds, more than anything else. I've seen way more cool settings there than in most of the other markets around these days.
