Some Stats on Our Story Selection Process

For those of you who are curious about the odds of your story getting selected by E-Spec, here are some stats. The submission period for our May issue was January 15 to April 17. In that timeframe, we received around 200 stories. As usual, we randomly divided those stories among the three editors. We held 22 stories for voting, and in a couple of weeks the three of us will choose somewhere between 5 and 7 stories. So, going by the numbers, stories submitted to Electric Spec have around a 2% chance of getting to publication. Of course, it really isn't about the numbers. If you have an excellent story, there's a good chance of getting published.

If you submitted a story to us before April 17, you should have heard from us by now.

Actually, Dave, since we changed our publication dates this year, the story is slightly more complicated for this issue only. Right? I believe some stories from the prior cycle were held over for this issue.
