On March 15th, I sent a story to Diabolical Plots publishing newsletter subscribers written by Sunil Patel.

This was not the right choice for me to make. Diabolical Plots is here to serve the SF publishing community, and I am sorry for my lapse in judgment. I can’t unsend an email, but the story will be removed from the publishing lineup scheduled on the Diabolical Plots site (and replaced with a different story if I can work it out). If anyone wishes to provide further feedback, please feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.

And the winner is: Damon Shaw. I’ll be sending a copy of Bull Spec #1 to the address of his choice. Congratulations, Damon!
