Ten thousand authors

| No Comments

As of sometime around this past Sunday, Strange Horizons has received stories from approximately 10,000 different authors since we started getting subs in mid-2000.

There are still most likely some authors who are listed in the database more than once, and a few authors who are listed despite never actually submitting a story we could consider (for various reasons), so there's no way to be certain exactly when we crossed the 10k mark. But it was probably sometime in the past few days.

We've had a little over 22,500 submissions, so on average, each author has sent us about two and a quarter stories--but of course that doesn't really mean much; lots of authors have sent only one story, and a few have sent dozens.
