Having got Asylum back, I've dispatched it to Ballista, and Ruin has gone to Pseudopod. So many horror markets are closed to submissions at the moment, or soliciting solely for themed anthologies. I really need to do more research into mainstream markets, but I suspect 'ghost stories with optimistically bleak endings' are as 'ever-so-slightly' outside their remit as they are for traditional horror markets. I've completed another one, and I've two more in very rough form, so I need to find somewhere to send them!
(I also really need a better description than 'optimistically bleak'. The thesaurus has failed me)
