I'm beginning to send out the first acceptances and rejections for Lacuna this week; I must admit, I wasn't prepared for the high number and quality of submissions for the magazine. I could easily fill four issues just with what I've received so far this month!
On the flip side, there are a number issues I'm encountering for the first time with a historical fiction magazine. For example, several submissions have included unsavory racial or ethnic stereotypes. Not cool. There's also a strangely large number of submissions with no definite historical content. While I love seconday world fantasy (see Mirror Dance above), it doesn't belong in a historical fiction journal.
Keep those submissions coming!
