We're living in the days of instant rejection. Back before computers, I used to collect politely printed rejection slips from magazines as a kind of masochistic something or other. Anyway, the Chronicle Magazine editor just e-mailed me in response to my query. She looked up that old story (which she found "heartbreaking and very well done") but doesn't think doing another one is a good idea, barring some concrete evidence. I gave her Annasbro's story, GW's note, and our tipster's information, but...that wasn't concrete enough.
