Bride of the Golem Update

Following is a list of the stories I've accepted so far. I am awaiting rewrites from two people, which may or may not be included. When a publisher has picked up the project, we will solicit stories from a few other authors as well. In the meantime, Bride of the Golem will include these works:

Barry Rosenberg "Gershom's Golem"
Norman Rubin "Aunt Bessie and the It"
Sharon Diane King "Feast of the Laughing Cow"
Jim Meirose "Deni-al"
Melissa Yuan-Innes "WWWJD"
Liz Coley "Till Death Does His Part"
Aaron Simon "My Dog the Dybbuk"
Adina Rosenthal "Succubus-in-Law"
E. Mitchell "I Was a Teenage Yeshiva Boy Werewolf"
Eric Joel Bresin "Pig"
David Hendrickson "Floater"
Tonia Brown "Zombie Golem"
Mike DiChristina "Mr. Met"
Ken Liu "The MSG Golem"
David Naimon "Member"
Anna Taborska "Dirty Dybbuk"
A.B.S. Dudevant "The Gingerbread Golem"
Gio Clairval & Daniel Pasetti "Toytfogl"
Gus Ginsburg "By Way of Explanation"
G. Miki Hayden "The Cantor and the Ghost"

I received 211 submissions, of which about 35 were pretty good stories, in my opinion. Thanks to all who sent me their work.

Bride of the Golem submissions are now closed

The Bride of the Golem submissions deadline of April 4 has passed, and though I haven't finished making my way through the mountain of stories I've recently received, I definitely have enough good and publishable stories to fill the anthology. So if you're thinking of submitting, please don't--unless you're one of the four people I asked to revise and resubmit.

I hope to make my decisions on the stories I've received in the next few weeks, and to post a list of included stories by the end of the month.

If you missed the deadline, don't despair. If this project sells as well as I hope, there will be a Return of the Bride of the Golem project in the near future.

Thanks to all who submitted.
