There was a screw-up with the guest editors' submission system for this Mundane SF issue, which has placed many of the subs and rejection letters online. I go into more details on my blog at ... ew-up.html

As I stated, Interzone didn't do anything wrong here. But it is irritating that the guest editors let personal stuff be accessible by Google and other search engines.

Yes very bad form though it does seem to have disappeared now.
Well done on the Analog result though.

I found a fragment of my own submission in the Google cache.

So here's a funny story about what happened next. I never did receive a rejection in any form - I did have email issues a couple of times last year - so I thought; I'll see if I there are any comments.

Sure enough, next to my search fragment it says 'fancy words, ugly job'. Rejection doesn't bother me, but to find comments on a story on the internet when I didn't get any myself, well. Much cussing, chunnering, blamestorming and kicking the cats ensued in the Icarus household until, clutching a glass of strong medicine, I went back to the original document to re-read the story only to find that after the fragment that I copied to Google, the next line is: 'fancy words, ugly job'.

Hoist by my own petard. Perhaps my subconscious has become a critic.

George Berger found this on the Guardian website. It should ring a bell with Bob Angell whose fine story Remote Control about the US--Mexico border appeared in the Mundane IZ. George wonders "when will the govt. erect gun positions?"

I looked at the site and wondered if they have much of a problem with Spammers

Post subject:  Some ideas from the UK this time.

At least in the world of Mundane Futurology the Brits aren't lagging very far behind the Gringos, as you can see by reading this: ... . Thanks to the Guardian once again.

Brain chips and EMPulse weapons sound like a marriage made in Hell.

...pressure to release stories "at the expense of facts".

Not exactly futurology, that!

Here's one projected weapon that combines magnetic fields and the brain, although not yet with chips. About ten years ago academic psychologists developed Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation, the use of strong magnetic fields somehow directed at locaized brain regions to see the subject's reactions. The idea was to get more data on how the brain divides its tasks within itself. All kinds of behavioral, sensory, and conceptual responses have been produced (but I know no details). In no time some Western defense establishments got interested. Any seasoned SF reader can think of some scenarios for thought control and direction. I don't know what's been accomplished. It's as scary and Mundane as those gun emplacements along the US-Mexico border.
