There's a new interview with F&SF editor Gordon Van Gelder up at SF Revu:

There were a few tense moments but then it all seemed to work out.

The short story is dead everywhere but in fantasy and SF?

Clearly not a New Yorker fan
|Posted on Tuesday, June 12, 2007 - 04:13 pm: |
Clearly not much of a reader outside of sf/f.

Yeah, I don't want to drop too heavy on the person.
[Ellen]Some time ago I was reading your interview in the Science Fiction Eye and then comparing it with these more recent interviews.

Wowsie! That was a long time ago.

The part of the interview that shocked me was the revelation that Albert Cowdrey sometimes sends in stories that are not perfect.
Seriously, the Albert Cowdrey name on the cover is the biggest factor in whether my wife opens the issue. She often wants me to read those out loud too.

Not only does Bert Cowdrey sometimes send in stories that need work, but he continues to learn the craft of writing. A few years ago he sent me a story that I turned down. He went back and reworked it into a knockout novella that we'll be running next year.
You can tell your wife that we'll have stories by Cowdrey in the August and September issues, and it's 90% likely he'll have one in the Oct/Nov issue also.

I told her and she recalled that she likes Richard Chwedyk more than Cowdrey.
I had to sing the Saur song again.
She got Richard to sing it at Odd-Con.
I don't suppose there is another Saur story.
If there is not, somebody's hooz-bon is going to have to make one up.
