SFF book publisher Meisha Merlin pours its slush away.

More bad news for new wannabe SFF authors.

Meisha Merlin, the innovative small press fast becoming a much bigger one, is, as of this time, no longer accepting submissions.

Meisha Merlin is the brainchild of Stephen Pagel (MM's President and Senior Editor), who has used his contacts as former national buyer for Barnes and Noble in the USA to good effect since 1996.
