I'm winding down the reading period for an anthology of Martian stories. It's been a long time since I've had to reject so many stories. About 3/4 of the stories I got were simply not what I was looking for. Very few of them even remotely followed the submission guidelines. Heck, they didn't even mention Mars and could have been taking place just about anywhere. A collection of Martian stories should have stories that actually take place on or be about Mars in some fashion. Very disappointing. I've got a few left to read this weekend. Oh well, that's the risk one takes. I doubt I'll do any more anthologies, at least not for some time.
