Where I collect rejections from publishers and the stories they rejected

In order to succeed, I must be prepared to fail as often as necessary to achieve success. Here, I aim to publish 100 rejections from publishers in the order I receive them together with the stories that were rejected.

To be good at one's vocation, one must simply avoid being bad.
To be great, one must purposely aim for awful.

Get up once more than you fall.
Put your ideas into action.

This is near to a way.

PRESS RELEASE 005 Tropic of the Rat

Warsaw, Poland -- A science fiction story was submitted yesterday to Asimov's fiction magazine.

Written in two parts over a year ago, the 12,500 word short story depicts an uncertain narrator who must survive a world where ordinary rules of time and space do not apply.

"Every failure is one step closer to success, who knows? This could be it, certainly it's closer to it than I've ever been before," said author Bulent Akman.

Because the story in question remains under consideration at time of writing, this correspondent cannot reveal the title of the story.

"It's about time travel with a twist" said Mr. Akman during interviews.
