Mmmmmmm Berry Brains....

Dear Ms. B.:

Thank you for your short story submission. We appreciate the traditional start and finish, and you've chosen two of our favorite themes: domestic abuse and animal cruelty. Alas, our short story audience is currently grieving the end of the space shuttle program and craving space opera with transgendered zombie generational families. While your story comes close -- well, no. It really doesn't, does it.

We hope you'll keep us in mind for your next short about dysfunctional bear families. Consider throwing in a zombie or two.
