Rejection letters

Sometimes personal rejection letters can be amusing. Here are a few excerpts:

"To be perfectly frank, the only reason for our rejection of the story is that real estate is terribly, terribly boring. It's difficult to get into a story with such a boring premise, and impossible when that premise is not even played down or dressed up with other, sexier topics. ... We paged through and found that the later descriptions of the deformed woman were indeed disturbing."

And another for the same short horror story:

"To be perfectly honest, fat murderous retards are played out."

Here's downtown Austin at night. Halcyon on 4th Street is cool coffee bar and lounge.
