Layers on the Battlefield -- Strange Horizons -- Aug 17 '05 - Sep 06 '05
Dear Kaolin Fire,

Thank you for submitting "Layers on the Battlefield" to Strange Horizons, but we've decided not to accept it for publication. Among other things, I'm afraid I wasn't really sure what was going on at the end -- is the idea that the computer was left behind by the other side, and has now somehow been coopted by the side that now possesses it? Anyway, the story didn't really work for us.

But we appreciate your interest in our magazine.

--Jed


Two up, two down. 18 pending. Need to get back on it.
