Writin Stuff

I'm editing an anthology of ghost stories.  What astonishes me is that I keep getting horror stories. By definition, a ghost story is a horror story. However, the reverse is not true. Only a small percentage of horror stories are ghost stories.  But, unfortunately, I'm getting stories that don't have any ghosts in them.  What the heck is wrong with these people?  I seriously wonder what some of these so-called writers are smoking.  It was the same deal when I was reading for Martian stories--34 stories came in that did not even mention Mars and had nothing to do with Mars.  This is nothing new. But it sure is a baffling waste of time.

Another thing. Nobody ever sends editors cookies..
