I shall read this later, this is pretty cool, thanks for pointing it out. Was it listed on this site at all?

Perhaps even more notable is the market; I hadn't heard of this one. Well, actually, there are a lot of markets I haven't heard of, but I think the name is unusual, and I find the guidelines disappointing yet a challenge: no genre fiction, but the rate of pay seems to be high. Has anyone ever submitted to this site?

Incidentally, I was going to like the original post, but I noticed at the time there were twelve likes (if my quick count is accurate); I didn't want to be like number thirteen, sorry. (There has to be a horror story in that, perhaps.)

One other thought: one thing I dislike about reading one of King's short stories is it feels like I'm stealing from a future anthology; I'd rather have an anthology be entirely new to me. (Maybe there's a sci-fi story there: a device is invented in the future that allows one to forget all the stories in an anthology that one has previously read; comes free with every copy.)

So it seems many of us Constant Readers did not know about this story. Why? Can Moderator shed any light on this for us?
Edit: It's not even listed in the Library on the main SK site.
I put this explanation in another thread but will post here again. Even I didn't know about it. Steve sends his short stories directly to his agent to shop so I'm not in that loop and both he and his agent sometimes forget to tell me it's been sold. That's what happened here. I'll be updating the Library and adding something to the news...although it's now old news.

Thanks! Sorry to make you have to repeat yourself; some of us are just slower than others to catch on. Interesting explanation, though.

Steve must have so much on his mind- writing his 6 pages:smile2: each day, that exhausting tour prep and doing it, family- yes he needs time with Molly and humans too.

Gentle reminder to his agent- Constant Readers are patient, please do not forget to tell us.;) Happy you were able to sell the story-
