Polyphony 4 will likely appear sometime around October 1, and certainly no later than WFC.

The submission period for Polyphony 5 will be September 15 - October 31, 2004.

Polyphony is (obviously) moving toward a once/year schedule rather than the more ambitious (and insane) twice/year schedule I started with. Of course, Polyphony 4 is more than twice as big as Polyphony 1, so we're still bringing you plenty o' fiction. :-)

Watch this space for announcements of other Wheatland Press projects in the coming months.

Thanks for your support!

Can you let me know what happened to my submission "P is for Powerstation" which I sent to you in September last year. I presume that it was rejected but I never heard back.

Geoff, I answered your email a short while ago.

Deborah;

In his review at StrangeHorizons, Greg Beatty says "I submitted three stories to P2 and P3..." I was wondering if that means Polyphony 5 will be open to multiple submissions? (There are two stories I've been polishing up with P5 in mind, and am having difficulty deciding which one to send).

Robert,

I think that may have been a miscount by Greg. The submission guidelines for Polyphony 5 will be the same as for Polyphony 4, namely no simultaneous or multiple submissions, please. It's hard enough to process 500 subs -- if even half those people sent two stories, Jay and I would be even more insane than we already are.

Thanks for understanding.

Deborah

P.S. I need to get this information posted and to the usual market listing sites, but FYI, the submission period will be October 15-November 30, or something very close to that, maybe a bit later.

Hi there.
Nope, no miscount, Deborah. I petitioned Jay to let me submit two stories to P1. Didn't help, but there you go.

My contributor copies came yesterday--very fine looking anthology Ms. Lane. And lots of stories to read too. I'm sure it will get a lot of attention. And sales. So you can keep this young anthology marching forward.

No photos of you running around the house naked for this either? Man, there better be some pay off in Boston.

Thank you, Robert, I do hope you enjoy reading it.

JK, that's a subscription service...
http://www.happy-nekkid-publisher.com

All three new titles arrived at once, so for the freebie photos, I thought I'd follow the Wexler Sushi Tradition. Poly 4 was cool with sushi, but American Sorrows wanted Thai and Knuckle Sandwiches wanted a burger and a brewski. Trantums, pouting, kicking...I tell you it was chaos.

Maybe they'll behave better in Boston.

Hey! That link goes nowhere! And I gave it my credit card info!

Great line-up on this book Deb, BTW.
