We've been seeing a lot of giant-monster stories lately.
I've been assuming that most of them were rejected by one or another of the Daikaiju! giant-monster anthologies. The second volume came out last summer, and the third last fall, so the timing is approximately right for the rejected stories to be washing up on our shores and stomping and roaring through our slushpile.
I've got nothing against giant-monster stories. But as with anything that we see a lot of, such stories are getting to be kind of a hard sell for me.
I'm not putting it on the stories-we've-seen-too-often list yet, 'cause I think it's a temporary thing--I suspect that after this wave passes, giant monsters will go back to being a rarity in submissions to us.
But if you were thinking of sending us your giant-monster story in the next few days, might be best to send something else instead.
