Cinema Spec: The Cast Is Set!

I've now answered ALL submissions for Cinema Spec: Tales of Hollywood and Fantasy. Yay! If you sent something during the submissions period, and you're still waiting to hear from me, best to hop on the Querytown Trolley at the next stop.

I ended up buying one more story than planned. Below is the list of stories and poems accepted for the anthology, with brief annotations noting form/genre/theme. The current list is arranged alphabetically by the author's last name, but later will be reposted in the order of Cinema Spec's Table of Contents.

If I must say so myself, it's a stunning cast. :-)
