  1. Mr. Bates. Congratulations on Spillwords awards. I see we have a lot in common – several publishers, first published (me 2014), late start (I was 71 in 2014). Tom Sheehan’s continued success at his age makes us both appear to be pups.

    Ariel Chart accepted a story but never published it (there was no explanation, but I expect that they didn’t like the politics). Not going back there.
