Seeking reader for SF short stories
« on: October 01, 2015, 12:45:22 PM »
Ahoy-hoy!  In preparation for yet another round in the query trenches, I'm looking to bolster my bio with that old sci-fi standby, the short story.  To that end, I'm seeking feedback for two shorts, together totaling just under 18k words.

In exchange, I'll provide feedback for a full-length MS (what a savings!  :up:).  I'd prefer adult SF, but I'll do YA and Fantasy as well.

One further note: though there is no deadline, I'd prefer feedback ASAP because 1) I'd really like to start shopping these around to magazines and 2) come on, 18k.   :naughty:

Thanks in advance for any respondents, and have a great rest of the week...

Hi Hrothmeir,

Be glad to read your shorts for an opinion on four-five chapters of mine?  Let me know and thanks!
