Raven's Acceptance/rejection rate + last four purchases

I've now answered all submissions from Raven Electrick's March reading period. Congratulations to me!

The acceptance rate this time out was 9%. (For those without a calculator handy, the rejection rate was 91%. ;-) ) That's higher than last year's acceptance rate of 5.6%, but I didn't allow multiple submissions per author this year, which helped to cut down on my work while still allowing me to be selective.

The last four purchases are (drum roll, please): "In the Time of the Hohmann Transfer" a science fiction story by Brandon Myers, "The Opening" a dark fantasy story by Therese Arkenberg, "Entropy," a science fiction poem by J. E. Stanley, and "Lamar Valley" a mainstream/spec poem by Deborah P. Kolodji.
