They do everything on spec. If they pay for it they use it, if they don't
they don't use it. If you want it back, send SASE. If you don't send SASE
with the original material, don't expect to ever see it again.

Good luck.

Amusing story: I had a long spat with Simmons about my writing. Judy
Seigel will attest to the fact that my writing has, at times some serious
flaws. Toward the end of this diatribe with Simmons, I copied a Steinbeck
passage, changed the names and noun objects; but it was reacted to by
Simmons with such a barrage of negative critizisms. Even his writers (he
sometimes pays writers to appear on site to verify and clarify, write
articles) who appeared to finalize this one story confided to me how he uses
this [email] writing example of awful stuff.

So, you're dealing with a guy who hates Nobel Laurate writing . . . what
else can be said. The guy is one person who works at a desk with papers
falling off on the floor, I have been told. He's a dedicated person,
dedicated to view camera photography, and I enjoy reading most of the stuff
that gets into the magazine. Lots of luck, if you retain your own sense of
character, deal with the excentrics.
