Thank you for submitting your story, “Payload”, to Daily Science Fiction. Unfortunately, we have decided not to publish it. To date, we have reviewed many strong stories that we did not take. Either the fit was wrong or we’d just taken tales with a similar theme or any of a half dozen other reasons.
Best success selling this story elsewhere.

PS An almost.
My first rejection from a pro market! Even though I think it’s a form letter. I’m going to send them another short right now. That’s not sim-subbing – that’s just per-sis-tance, yo.
Also, does anyone know what the ‘PS An almost.‘ bit means? Anyone else had a similar rejection from DSF?
