And behold at the week's commence I did send out a query requesting information about the submission that has languished now at the same house for nigh on these two years.
And this very day did I receive an most courteous answer…
And the answer was neither yes,
It is, I am informed, still “on the list”.
And I, not having devised any schemes or actions to take in such a case,
intend to do nothing.
I am, after all, busy writing the next… er, fourth book.
(Poor, Asond! He so hates to be wrong, and I have been putting him in situations where there isn't a right answer. I suspect he will have something pithy and very annoyed to say on the subject tomorrow.)
