No matter what the theme, her wide variety of stories are strikingly original and always indelible.

Sf/f short story critique

Item Name & Description: Critique of a sf/f short story up to 7,500 words. I have published a number of short stories (Clarkesworld, F&SF, Tor.com, Lightspeed). If you’d like to talk about possible markets and whether your story is ready to be submitted, I’m happy to do that, too.

I’m willing to critique fanfic, but please check with me first regarding (a) fandom (my range here is limited) and (b) audience/subject material. I do militaristic sf most of the time, so if you are writing a Regency romance AU with werewolves, I’m probably not your best bet.

Starting Bid: $25.00.

Notes: Delivered within two weeks. Please have the story ready when the auction is over. You should save the story in standard manuscript format, RTF or .doc, for original fiction.

Bidding opens on Saturday, February 9, 2013 at 12:01 a.m. Eastern Time and closes Sunday, February 24, 2013 at 11:59 p.m. Eastern Time. More Information.
