Submissions to Strange Horizons

This showed up on twitter via SFWA and another friend, Spiral Galaxy:

If you've submitted to @strangehorizons from a gmail address, please read about the spam problem. http://is.gd/2q8Vn

That link is to this: http://www.kith.org/journals/jed/2009/08/20/12325.html where Jed discusses the mysterious issues with gmail where the mail is simply gone at times, not even in a spam folder, it seems.

And the reverse might also be true. There's a comment about submissions to an editor who uses gmail as the address for submissions.

I'm posting this not because I'm in the group, but because I have a large f-list who can pass this along.

I had one in my spam yesterday from SH. Thanks for the heads-up.

This very thing was brought to my notice just before I read this. Since I have a story there I subbed via my gmail 62 days ago, I shot off a query immediately. I usually check my spam folder before I dump as a matter of routine, but there are times when I just dumped it. Wonder how long they take for a query?

my impression from that blog post was that they're very alert now to the problem and trying to react quickly.

I have experienced this firsthand. I've had to query them because I'm not receiving the rejections, but when they mail to me directly in response to the query, I receive it fine. And it never hits spam, never appears anywhere -- just disappears. And those were actually a while back. Sounds like it's getting worse.

How bizarre!
