I have two updates in relation to the Mormon alternate history anthology I’m editing.
With Monsters & Mormons the name came first and the commitment to doing the actual anthology later so it was clear what to call it. With this one, I’ve been bouncing various ideas off of Theric and none have really worked until now (that’s why in the call for submissions, there’s no title stated). But I think I finally have it: States of Deseret will be the name of the anthology (unless I change my name between now and publication [but I don’t think I will–I like this one]).
I am reading them. Thanks again to all those who submitted. I hope to have my initial read through completed by the end of the month and then responses to everyone in the latter part of May. Thanks for your patience. I know it’s not fun to wait.

Everyone I know is super-patient.
I will point out that a two(ish) month turn around for anthology submissions is not bad at all. Of course, if you submitted early on in the submission window, it feels like it’s been forever.
I like it!
And I guess Th. doesn’t know me at all.
Good name! It makes me wish (again) that I had the capability to think in short story-size ideas…
