Rejection #7: Full Circle

Hi Alex,

Thanks again for your submission. Unfortunately we are unable to use the story in Damnation and Dames.

L** and A*****

This rejection is for the same story that was in rejection #6, however they weren't as encouraging as the last.  I understand that editors have to read hundreds of stories for these anthologies, but I'd appreciate a little something to show that they actually read it, or better yet why they were "unable to use the story". Although this story's been rejected twice now, I have hopes for this year, stay tuned for exciting news for me and
