I'm delighted to report that Raven Electrick's first purchase for 2008 is "Neighbors," a 400-word story by Robert Borski, and one of the most original flashes I've read. Robert's fiction has appeared in Analog and F&SF, his poetry in Strange Horizons and Star*Line, and he's written two books about the fiction of Gene Wolfe. "Neighbors" is scheduled to appear in Raven Electrick on August 29.
I've now replied to subs sent through March 6, and the list of holds is growing. The odds of acceptance for anyone on the holds list are about one in two at the moment, but that will change as I continue my trek through the slush pile.
